A portion of Oliver Road (Route 4008) will be closed starting July 5 as work continues on the five-leg roundabout in Summit Township, Erie County.
Oliver Road will be closed at the intersection with Hamot Road and Flower Road. A five-mile detour will be posted using Route 19 (Peach Street), Hershey Road (Route 4010) and Hamot Road. It is expected to be in place for 11 days, weather permitting.
Construction of the roundabout is being done in seven phases, which include milling, paving, sidewalks, ADA curb ramps, drainage improvements, environmental mitigation, lighting, vegetation replacement, and pavement markings.
Additional short-term detours and traffic pattern shifts will be needed throughout the project. PennDOT urges motorists to slow down when driving in work zones, and also to be alert to changing conditions, avoid distractions and to pay attention to signs and flaggers. Drive responsibly in work zones for your safety and the safety of the workers.
