Work Continues at Route 30/Route 222 Interchange Improvement Project in Lancaster County


Contractor to remove and reset barrier, perform joint repairs

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that the contractor for the Route 30/Route 222 Interchange Improvement Project in Lancaster County plans to remove and reset barrier and perform joint repairs on northbound and southbound Route 222, and set barrier on the southbound Route 222 ramp to westbound Route 30. 

Weather permitting, this work will be performed from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM the nights of Monday, April 21, through Saturday, April 27. The contractor will remove temporary barrier northbound and southbound on Route 222, repair longitudinal joints in both directions, reset temporary barrier northbound and southbound on Route 222 to switch traffic to the right side of roadway, set barrier on the Route 222 southbound ramp to westbound Route 30, place new pavement markings and switch southbound Route 222 to eastbound Route 30 over a paved crossover to allow for bridge reconstruction.

The project includes improvements at the Route 222/Route 30 Interchange and reconstructing Route 222 from the interchange north approximately one mile near Stoner Park, which is just south of the Landis Valley Road bridge spanning the highway.

Work on the north side of the interchange includes constructing a second lane on the southbound Route 222 ramp to westbound Route 30 that will tie into the existing northbound Route 272 (Oregon Pike) exit ramp. A third lane will be added from the westbound Route 30 ramp to northbound Route 222 while extending this lane to the existing westbound Route 30 third lane approaching Oregon Pike (Route 272).

Work on the south side of the interchange includes constructing a second ramp lane from eastbound Route 30 to northbound Route 222. The new ramp lane will tie into the existing Route 30 travel lane (right lane), giving drivers using the right lane of eastbound Route 30 the option to continue east or exit to northbound Route 222.

Route 222 will be converted from four lanes to six lanes from the interchange to the north end of the project limits. 

Additionally, the two bridges carrying Route 222 ramps over Route 30 will be replaced, with the northbound Route 222 bridge being widened to two lanes. The Eden Road bridge spanning Route 222 north of the interchange will remain in place. Route 222 under the bridge will be lowered to increase clearance under the bridge.

Four lanes of traffic will be maintained during the life of the project.

Motorists should be alert and drive with caution through the work zone.

This project is expected to be completed by September 3, 2027.

JD Eckman, Inc., of Atglen, PA, is the contractor on this $72,173,900 project.
