Work Begins on the Route 522 Resurfacing Project
 
Shirleysburg –The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced that prime contractor New Enterprise Stone & Lime of New Enterprise will begin work on Monday, April 11, to resurface approximately 4.5 miles of Route 522 in Cromwell Township, Huntingdon County.
 
Work on this project will consist of the milling and resurfacing of the existing roadway along with drainage and guiderail upgrades. There will also be ADA ramps installed throughout the project.
 
Traffic will be reduced to one lane and controlled by flaggers. Motorists are advised to exercise caution as they travel through the work zone. They should adjust their speed, pay attention to signs and signals given by flaggers, and give their full attention to the roadway in front of them.
 
All work on this $1.5 million project will be completed by the beginning of October, 2016.
