After years of planning, a two-year road construction project will get underway next week in Adams Township.
A nearly $8 million project is set to begin March 15 at the intersection of Route 228 and Pittsburgh Street in the township. According to information provided by PennDOT, the project includes the construction of turn lanes, signal improvements, drainage upgrades and the construction of a new box culvert.
Signs were in place Tuesday, though they remained covered by black tarps. Electronic signs on each side of Route 228 indicated the work will begin March 15, and take place during nighttime hours from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
The work will be done by Gulisek Construction, and is expected to be completed by May 2020. The project is expected to cost $7.99 million.
“This intersection safety and mobility improvement project will enhance travel on the vital Route 228 corridor in Butler County,” Gov. Tom Wolf said. “All modes of transportation on Route 228 will be enhanced by through lanes in each direction as well as dedicated left and right turn lanes and bike lanes.”
