Rt. 11 resurfacing begins in April
MONTOURSVILLE - A $1.48 million resurfacing project along 2.5 miles of Route 11 in Northumberland County is set to start the week of April 1.
Prime contractor New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co., Inc. will begin by making bituminous base repairs. Later in the project, the work will also include drainage improvements, guiderail upgrades, two new layers of blacktop, paved shoulders, and new pavement markings.
The work along Route 11 starts at the intersection with De Gruchy Avenue in Northumberland Borough and ends near the intersection with Bulk Plant Road in Point Township.
This section of Route 11 is wide enough to accommodate one lane of traffic in each direction during the project. There will, however, be a restriction for over-width loads. Any loads over 14 feet wide will be prohibited from traveling through the work zone from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, weekdays.
Motorists are reminded to pay full attention to their driving when approaching and passing through the work zone. Be alert for turning vehicles and sudden stops. Drive defensively.
All work is scheduled for completion by June 19.
