Road Work to Start April 5 on Route 22 Business in Mifflin County

Lewistown, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is alerting motorists that road work on Route 22 Business in Mifflin County is set to begin Monday, April 5. This project will improve ride quality, enhance safety and extend the useful life of nearly two miles of roadway in Granville Township and Lewistown Borough.

Work on this project will be done in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the job site and relevant training.

Crews will be paving between Hoss Drive near Hoss’s Family Steak and Sea in Granville Township and Water Street in Lewistown Borough. The contractor will keep two lanes open to traffic whenever possible however single lane closures with flaggers providing traffic control will be necessary. Drivers are urged to anticipate delays, exercise caution while traveling through the work zone and be alert for sudden stops. Drivers should not follow trucks delivering material into a closed lane.

Overall work consists of milling and paving, drainage improvements, ADA ramp and sidewalk installation. Upgrades to traffic signal supports, vehicular and pedestrian signal heads, and signal controllers will also be a part of this project.

HRI, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $3.4 million project, which PennDOT anticipates completing by early November. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
