Schedule Update for Bridge Approach Reconstruction on Route 15 in York County

06/10/2022

Work is part of Route 15 resurfacing and safety improvement project in Adams and York counties

Harrisburg, PA – Bridge approach reconstruction planned for this weekend on Route 15 just south of Clear Spring Road in York County, has been postponed due to the forecast for rain. This work is now expected to be performed next weekend, weather permitting.

This work is 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. 

This will be an around-the-clock operation, with the contractor closing the northbound right lane at approximately 5:30 PM and the southbound right lane after 7:00 PM on Friday, June 17. The existing asphalt, concrete, and subbase will be removed from the right lanes and will be replaced with new subbase, asphalt base and binder. This work is expected to be completed by the evening of Saturday, June 18. 

This process will be repeated in the passing lanes on northbound and southbound Route 15 the weekend starting Friday, June 24. 

Paving will be performed at a later date. This work is weather permitting.

The Route 15 project consists of ramp acceleration and deceleration lane lengthening, and intersection safety improvements. The entire pavement width, including roadway and shoulders, will be resurfaced and all guide rail will be replaced. 

Other work includes milling, pavement construction and reconstruction, subbase, drainage improvements, rock placement, rock slope excavation, concrete barrier, pavement markings, signing and other work in Franklin and Carroll townships, York County, and Huntington and Latimore townships, Adams County. 

New Enterprise Stone and Lime Company, Inc. of New Enterprise, PA, is the prime contractor on this $19,398,074 project.

This project is expected to be completed in August 2023.
