I-70 Rehabilitation Work To Begin

From Amaranth to the Maryland state line

Prime contractor P & W Excavating Inc. of McConnellsburg began rehabilitation work on five miles of Interstate 70 from the Maryland state line to Amaranth (Exit 163) in Fulton County on Monday, March 14.

Work on the project consists of the refurbishment of the Warfordsburg Interchange (Exit 168) as well as the rehabilitation of four structures, guiderail upgrades, installation of shoulder rumble strips, pavement markings and signs and installation of a concrete median barrier along Interstate 70.

Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction for the duration of the project. Motorists should expect delays, especially during peak travel periods and are urged to use caution while traveling through the work zone.

The $9.94 million project is expected to be completed by early November 2011 and is 100 percent funded by the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
