The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to online plans display for State Route 3017, Section 032 (Lingle Avenue) roadway reconstruction and stream restoration project located in South Londonderry Township, North Londonderry Township and Palmyra Borough, Lebanon County, starting at the intersection with State Route 3019 (Palmyra Road) and extending 1.68 miles to the northwest ending just prior to W Cherry street.
The purpose of the project is to modernize the corridor to meet the current needs of the community by reducing or eliminating flooding and standing water on State Route 3017, include shoulder widening where feasible, and to provide adequate drainage systems to ensure a long roadway design life.
The project will reconstruct or resurface Lingle Avenue between State Route 3019 (Palmyra Road) and just south of W. Cherry Street and E. Caracas Avenue. In addition, improvements to stabilize Spring Creek will eliminate or minimize the recurring flooding between Northside Drive and the Lingle Avenue Elementary School entrance. Additional drainage improvements are included within the full depth reconstruction section of the roadway to mitigate additional impervious area. 5’-0” shoulders will be provided within the reconstruction section of the project. Sidewalk will be constructed connecting two existing sidewalk systems at either end of the reconstruction section of the project.
Traffic attempting to access Lingle Avenue between Northside Drive and the Lingle Avenue Elementary School is anticipated to be detoured during construction. The proposed detour route is approximately 4.3 miles long and will utilize State Route 3019 (Palmyra Rd) and State Route 422 (W. Main Street). The duration of the detour is expected to be approximately 4-6 months.
The project is currently in design and construction work is expected to start in the 2025 construction season and be completed in the 2026 construction season.
