LIMERICK PA – An upcoming series of six consecutive overnight lane closures is planned to enable repair of Linfield-Trappe Road in Limerick Township, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation reported Friday (Jun 16, 2023).
The work is part of an effort to resurface more than 200 miles of state-owned highway across the greater Philadelphia region, it said. Collectively, the projects are valued at $134 million.
Local lane closures required for milling and paving operations are scheduled for:
- Sunday (June 18) overnight from 5 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following morning on Linfield-Trappe Road, between Lewis Road and Township Line Road; and
- Monday through Friday (June 19-23) overnights from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following morning, also on Linfield-Trappe Road between Lewis Road and Township Line Road.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area. PennDOT claimed slowdowns will occur. All scheduled activities depend on acceptable weather, it added.
PennDOT is milling the existing road surfaces and repaving them with new asphalt. The work will seal the highways and provide a smoother riding surface, according to the agency.
