Wolf Administration Announces $3.4 Million Project to Improve PA 309 in Schuylkill County
“This Route 309 project includes patching and paving, making a smoother ride for the thousands of motorists who travel here each day,” Governor Tom Wolf said.
The project includes milling, concrete patching, base repairs, paving, concrete island replacements, minor bridge repair work, guide rail updates, and new pavement markings.
During construction, motorists may experience lane restrictions days and nights on PA 309 between Rose Street in Tamaqua and approximately 2700 feet north of Lincoln Drive in Rush Township. Motorists are advised to expect delays and use caution traveling through the area. This section of PA 309 has an average daily traffic volume that varies between 12,730 and 19,444 vehicles.
Lehigh Asphalt Paving & Construction Co. of Tamaqua, Pa. is the general contractor on the $3.4 million project. All work is scheduled to be complete in October. All schedules are subject to change.
