The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today there will be nighttime lane restrictions next week on westbound Route 322 in Swatara Township. A contractor is scheduled to perform temporary paving on the westbound Route 322 shoulder between Kunkle Avenue and Chambers Hill Road to prepare for a future traffic shift.
Weather permitting, this work will be performed from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM the nights of Wednesday, November 15, and Thursday, November 16. A right lane restriction will be in place from Kunkle Avenue to Chambers Hill Road during work hours.
Motorists should be alert and drive with caution through the work zone.
This work is part of the reconstruction of the intersection of Route 322 with Grayson Road and Chambers Hill Road in the township. The contractor will pave the shoulders of westbound Route 322 from Bridge Road to Witmer Drive to strengthen them for future traffic shifts.
The Route 322 signalized intersection with Grayson Road and Chambers Hill Road (Route 3006) is being reconstructed to four approaches with left-turn lanes removed from Route 322.
One through lane will be added in each direction of Route 322. Eastbound Route 322 left turns will be replaced with a new jug handle and signal at Witmer Road. Westbound Route 322 left turns will be replaced with a new roundabout and bypass lanes at the intersection with Milroy Road and Grayson Road.
Construction of three retaining walls will accommodate the widening and geometry, as well as the addition of dynamic message signs, stormwater management basins, drainage, guiderail, barrier, signs and upgraded pavement markings, and other miscellaneous construction.
This project is expected to be completed by August 18, 2027. J.D. Eckman, Inc., of Atglen, PA, is the prime contractor on this $38,561,349 project.
