Closure This Weekend on Cavalry Road at Intersection Improvement/Resurfacing Project in Cumberland County


Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that a closure is scheduled for this weekend, May 17-20, for Cavalry Road (Route 1001) at the Route 34 (Spring Road)/Cavalry Road intersection improvement and resurfacing project in North Middleton and Middlesex townships, Cumberland County.

Weather permitting, Cavalry Road will be closed from 8:30 AM Friday, May 17, to 6:00 AM Monday, May 20, from Suncrest Drive to Route 34. This closure will be in place so the contractor can complete full depth reconstruction of the Calvary Road intersection with Route 34. A detour will be in place using Cavalry Road, Route 11, and Route 34.

In addition to the closure of Calvary Road, Route 34 (Spring Road) will be reduced to a single lane of traffic controlled by flagging. If the contractor is unable to work this weekend, a backup date is set for May 31 to June 3.

This project includes reconstruction of the intersection of Route 34 and Cavalry Road and resurfacing and other construction on Route 34 from Route 944 (Enola Road) to the Carlisle Borough line, and on Cavalry Road from Route 34 to Route 11 (Harrisburg Pike). 

When the work at the intersection has been completed, the contractor will complete paving on Route 34 and Cavalry Road. There will be short-term lane restrictions under flagging Sunday through Thursday nights from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM, with the option for Friday night work as a rain date. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained during non-work hours.

Pennsy Supply, Inc., of Harrisburg is the prime contractor on this $4,242,793.30 project. Work is expected to be completed by July 25, 2024.
