Harrisburg, PA – A PennDOT maintenance crew in Dauphin County is scheduled to perform a bank stabilization and pipe replacement project on Shippen Dam Road (Route 4002) near Millersburg Borough in Upper Paxton Township. Work is expected to begin Monday, July 11, and be completed by Friday, July 29, weather permitting. 

The bank stabilization work will be performed just north of Oak Street. The pipe replacement is just north of Hup Road.
