Repaving on Cedar Crest Boule­vard starts Mon­day

The Morning Call - - LOCAL NEWS - — Tom Short­ell

Pen­nDOT will be­gin repaving 3.5 miles of Cedar Crest Boule­vard next week, kick­ing off three months of con­struc­tion along the state route.

Start­ing Mon­day night, con­struc­tion crews will be­gin work­ing be­tween Wal­bert Av­enue and In­ter­state 78. Con­struc­tion will typ­i­cally run from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., Pen­nDOT spokesman Ron Young Jr. said. The project calls for milling and repaving the road, build­ing curb cutout ramps and new pave­ment mark­ings.

“Pen­nDOT is com­mit­ted to en­sur­ing a smoother ride for mo­torists and im­prov­ing ac­ces­si­bil­ity for per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties, and this project will ac­com­plish both along this busy cor­ri­dor,” Gov. Tom Wolf said in a state­ment.

The night­time con­struc­tion will lead to lane re­stric­tions. Mo­torists should plan on giv­ing them­selves ex­tra time to drive through the con­struc­tion zone, Young said.

The $2.5 million project is ex­pected to last un­til Novem­ber.
