The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today there will be nighttime traffic restrictions next week on eastbound Route 322 at the Route 322/Chambers Hill Road Intersection Improvement project in Swatara Township, Dauphin County.
Weather permitting, the right lane of eastbound Route 322 will be closed between Mushroom Hill Road and Chambers Hill Road from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM the nights of Monday, January 15, through Thursday, January 18. This restriction will be in place so the contractor can excavate in the area of Witmer Drive.
Starting the following week beginning Sunday, January 21, this work will continue during the same hours Sunday through Thursday nights for the next six-to-eight weeks, depending on the weather.
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.
