Work To Resume On I-70 Project
Beginning this week, prime contractor New Enterprise Stone and Lime Co. Inc. of Bedford County will resume work on the Interstate 70 rehabilitation project.
The contractor will restrict traffic to one east-bound lane from the Town Hill Interchange (Exit 156) to the Amaranth Interchange (Exit 163) and to one west-bound lane near the Crystal Spring Interchange (Exit 151). These restrictions will be in place until Memorial Day weekend 2011.
This work is part of an overall project to rehabilitate 15 miles of Interstate 70 from the Bedford County line to the Amaranth Interchange in Union, Bethel, Brush Creek and East Providence townships in Fulton and Bedford County. Also included in this contract is minor rehabilitation of 15 structures within the project limits.
Motorists should expect delays through the work zone and are urged to use caution.
All work on this $15-million project is expected to be completed by October 2011 and is 100 percent funded by the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
