A $7.8 million project to improve Zuck Road (Route 4015) in MillcreekTownship is scheduled to start soon.
This project includes resurfacing the entire two-mile stretch of Zuck Road from Zimmerly Road (Route 4012) to West 26th Street (Route 20) in Millcreek Township, Erie County.
Work will include milling and overlay of the existing roadway, ADA compliant curb ramps, culvert replacement, drainage improvements, signage, and pavement markings. Safety improvements will also be made at various intersections throughout the project area, including new traffic signal equipment, signals retiming, and left turn lanes.
Construction is expected to begin with the removal of trees starting on March 20. Work on the roadway is scheduled to begin April 3, weather permitting, and is expected to be completed during the 2024 construction season.
Daylight lane closures will be the used during portions of the work and traffic will be controlled by flaggers.
A 2.5-mile detour will be needed for a portion of the work involving the culvert replacement. The detour, which is expected to be in place for two months, will be posted using West 38th Street (Route 4016), Sterrettania Road (Route 832), and West 26th Street.
The contractor is Lindy Paving of New Galilee, PA. The contract cost is $7,825,122, which is to be paid with entirely with federal funds. This project is funded at least in part by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL).
