Drivers are encouraged to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas, because slowdowns will occur, PennDOT said. All scheduled activities depend on acceptable weather.
This work is part of resurfacing projects under way across the Philadelphia region totaling $134 million. PennDOT is milling existing roadway surfaces, and repaving them with new asphalt to seal the road and provide motorists with a smoother ride.
