Resurfacing Project Announced for Pine Grove Township

The Wolf Administration announced today work is scheduled to begin next week on a $2 million project to repair and resurface Route 443 (Suedberg Road) in Pine Grove Township, Schuylkill County.

“This roadway is used by thousands of motorists each day, and will soon be smoother because of PennDOT’s investment,” Governor Tom Wolf said.

Route 443 will be milled and resurfaced between Peach Street and the Lebanon County line. This section of Route 443 has an average daily traffic volume that varies between 1,824 and 5,423 vehicles. The $2,086,977 project is financed with 100 percent state funds from Act 89, Pennsylvania’s Transportation Plan.

Starting Monday (June 26) and lasting throughout the duration of the project, motorists should be alert for lane restrictions weekdays between the hours of 6:30 AM and 4:30 PM. Updates will be provided whenever schedules change.

Under this improvement project, the contractor will mill off the existing roadway surface and repave the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface. The project also includes updating guiderail and repairing drainage

J.D. Eckman, Inc. of Atglen, PA is the general contractor on the project, which is expected to be complete in October.
