The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced major construction will begin Thursday, March 29, to greatly improve the intersection of Route 100 and Claussville and Kernsville roads in Lowhill Township.
Beginning Thursday, motorists can expect new traffic patterns on Route 100 between Windy and Pony roads. For approximately two weeks there will be single-lane conditions with flagging weekdays between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. This is to allow shoulder widening work to occur so traffic can be shifted to one side while the new intersection is constructed.
Seipstown Road, Route 863 and Lyon Valley Road (access will be maintained for residents and businesses on Claussville Road).
The project includes the creation of a new signalized intersection that includes widening the intersection for left turn only lanes on all four approaches, new signs and pavement markings, and drainage improvements. Additional work includes a minor realignment of Claussville Road at the intersection.
The general contractor on the $2,162,073 project is New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co., Inc. of New Enterprise, Pa.
The intersection has an average daily traffic volume of 17,556 vehicles on PA 100, 2,100 vehicles on Claussville Road and 4,480 vehicles on Kernsville Road.
Work began last October to clear vegetation and move utility lines prior to major construction. The project is expected to be completed in December.
