COLLEGEVILLE PA – Drainage and slope repairs scheduled in Collegeville will prompt four days of travel restrictions on a portion of Route 29 in the borough, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said. However, it will enable crews to fix highway damage caused by Hurricane Ida in September 2021.
A PennDOT contractor plans a single-lane closure on the section of Route 29 between Ninth Avenue and Main Street, from May 19 (Friday) at 7 p.m. until May 22 (Monday) at 6 a.m., for the necessary repairs. The lane closure will be accompanied by flaggers for traffic control.
Drivers should allow extra time when traveling through the work area. PennDOT indicated slowdowns may occur. All scheduled activities depend on acceptable weather.
The repairs in Collegeville are part of a larger, $1.8 million project for which J. D. Eckman Inc. of Atglen PA is the general contractor.
