RIVERSIDE - Motorists are advised that a 2.2-mile micro-surfacing project on Route 54 from Riverside to Boyd Station in Northumberland County will begin this afternoon.

The contractor will work on the east end of the project today, then move to Riverside and begin working east. Work will be performed through Friday and possibly Saturday.

Beginning Thursday, work will start after 8:30 a.m. to lessen the impact on morning traffic. Work should be finished each day by late afternoon.

The road will be reduced to a single lane with flagging operations for traffic control while work is being performed. Motorists should expect delays.
