Much needed improvements to approximately five miles of PA 100 in Heidelberg and Lowhill townships, Lehigh County will begin Wednesday (Sept. 25).
 
The improvements include roadway patching and resurfacing, replacing concrete mountable curbing, rock placement, guide rail upgrades, sign and sign post upgrades, brush clearing, tree trimming, pavement marking upgrades, and minor bridge rehabilitation work on six bridges. The work will occur on PA 100 between PA 309 and Claussville/Kernsville roads.
 
Beginning Wednesday, motorists should expect nighttime lane restrictions (8 p.m. to 6 a.m.) on PA 100. The majority of work will occur at night; however there will be times when tree trimming and brush clearing work will occur between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.  
 
Updates will be provided whenever traffic patterns change. Delays are expected and motorists are encouraged to use caution and allow for extra time traveling through the work zone.
 
The project is expected to be complete in September 2014. All schedules are weather dependent and subject to change.
 
J.D. Eckman, Inc. of Atglen, Pa. is the general contractor on the $3,158,723 project.
 
This section of PA 100 has an average daily traffic volume that varies between 9,340 vehicles at PA 309 and 16,167 vehicles at Claussville/Kernsville roads.
