ProjectStatusGraphic_Construction.pngRoute 19 Paving Project


Project Overview

The focus of this project is to resurface 3.5 miles of Route 19 between the Interstate 80 interchange in East Lackawannock and the intersection of Route 19 and Coolspring Street in Mercer Borough. In addition to the milling and paving, the project will also include the replacement of the box culvert located just South of Ben Bisset Chevy dealership in East Lackawannock Township. Additional work includes traffic signals updates, ADA curb ramps upgrades, and minor drainage repairs.

The project started in 2022 and was completed in July 2023.  

Work in 2023 consisted of installing new traffic signal equipment and some permanent signs. 

A two-lane, temporary road will be used during the box culvert replacement. Motorists will also encounter lane restrictions with traffic controlled by flaggers. Drivers should be alert for traffic pattern shifts and lane restrictions.
