PennDOT: Route 28 lane restrictions set for this weekend from East Deer into Harrison
There will be new lane restrictions on Route 28 from East Deer to Harrison in both directions this weekend as work continues on a $34 million highway project.
PennDOT said single-lane restrictions will be in place from the Bailies Run Bridge (near Exit 13) in East Deer and the Natrona Heights interchange (Exit 15) in Harrison.
Here is the schedule:
• Southbound – 9 a.m. Friday morning, continuously through 5 a.m. Monday.
• Northbound – 7 p.m. Friday night continuously through 2 p.m. Tuesday.
The restrictions are related to a seven-mile stretch of Route 28 between Bailies Run in East Deer and the Buffalo Township line. Work includes concrete patching, an asphalt overlay, bridge preservation work, drainage and guardrail improvements, installation of a new automatic bridge de-icing system and lighting upgrades.
The whole project is expected to be done in late December.
About 50,000 vehicles a day use Route 28 in the area of the project. Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com .
