Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that Century Lane and Franklin Church Road in Franklin Township, York County, were closed at the intersection with Route 15 as part of a resurfacing and safety improvement project on Route 15 from just south of York Springs in Adams County to just south of Dillsburg in York County.

Century Lane is accessible via Range End Road (TR-851). Franklin Church Road is accessible via Cabin Hollow Road (Route 4036) and Clearview Road (TR-888)
