The alignment of Route 124 will be shifted slightly to the north to increase safety benefits.

The proposed Route 124 typical section will comprise of 11-foot travel lanes and 6-foot shoulders. The proposed Freysville Road typical section will comprise of 11-foot travel lanes and 4-foot shoulders.   

Traffic will be maintained on Route 124 during construction. Detours for Freysville Road using state-owned roads will be implemented during specific stages of construction. Temporary construction easements and right-of-way acquisition are anticipated. PennDOT will coordinate directly with impacted property owners. Utilities will be impacted by construction and relocations are being coordinated with facility owners. 

The project is in preliminary design and construction work is anticipated to take place in the 2026 construction season subject to all approvals, environmental clearances, and funding availability.
