Resurfacing and Safety Improvement Project Resumes on Route 15 in Adams and York Counties


HARRISBURG– The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced that work is set to resume this week on a resurfacing and safety improvement project on Route 15 from just south of York Springs in Adams County to just south of Dillsburg in York County. 

This work will require left and right turn restrictions from Route 15 onto Golf Course Road/Range End Road, right turn restrictions from Golf Course Road/Range End Road onto Route 15, and permanent crossing and left turn restrictions at Glenwood Road within the Route 15 corridor just south of Dillsburg. Signed detours will be in place.

Weather permitting, on Monday, March 6, the contractor will begin line eradication and implement lane shifts on Route 15 at both intersections. This work will be performed from 6:30 AM to 4:30 PM. Traffic will be restricted to a single lane during work hours.

The following week beginning Monday, March 13, center barrier will be installed on Route 15 at both locations to eliminate crossing traffic and left turns from Glenwood Road onto Route 15 and left turns from Route 15 onto Golf Course Road/Range End Road. There will also be shoulder barrier during this phase at each intersection both north and south. Lanes will be shifted toward the median in both directions. The work area will be behind shoulders for this phase of work. There will be no right turns from side roads at both intersections.

This traffic pattern will allow widening to occur at Glenwood Road. This work is expected to take about 45 days to complete, after which the second phase will begin to permanently eliminate crossings and left turns at the intersection due to inadequate sight distance.

Work at Golf Course Road/Range End Road includes constructing a right turn lane to Golf Course Road from northbound Route 15 and replacing the plastic islands on both side roads with concrete islands and mountable curbs. This work is expected to take a maximum of 36 days to complete, after which improvements to left turn lanes on Route 15 will be made at the intersection. Once this work is complete, traffic will be restored to the original patterns of left and right turns from Route 15 onto side roads, and right turns from the side roads onto Route 15.

This work is part of a project that consists of ramp acceleration and deceleration lane lengthening, and intersection safety improvements. The entire pavement width, including roadway and shoulders, will be resurfaced and all guide rail will be replaced. 

Other work includes milling, pavement construction and reconstruction, subbase, drainage improvements, rock placement, rock slope excavation, concrete barrier, pavement markings, signing and other work in Franklin and Carroll townships, York County and Huntington and Latimore townships, Adams County. 

New Enterprise Stone and Lime Company, Inc. of New Enterprise, PA, is the prime contractor on this $19,398,074 project.

This project is expected to be completed in August 2023.
