Paving crews will commence paving operations on Willowbrook Road from West Bullshead Road to the Township Line on Monday, June 26th. Phase 1 will entail paving to facilitate the shift to two new travel lanes on the western side of Willowbrook. Phase 1 is anticipated to be completed in five construction days. Following completion, traffic will fully shift to the new westernmost lanes.
Immediately following Phase 1 completion, Phase 2 will commence which will include the reconstruction of the eastern portion of Willowbrook (the original travel lanes).
Be advised to expect delays due to changing traffic patterns, temporary one-lane conditions and lane shifts. Watch for flaggers during this activity and obey all posted signage restrictions.
Please watch for the installation of temporary signs to warn of the proposed work and plan accordingly.
Motorists are urged to watch for advance warning signs and flaggers. Be prepared to stop when construction traffic and crews are entering and exiting construction zones.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through these areas and use alternate routes if possible.
The PennDOT closure of Indian Trail Road due to bridge work will continue for the next few weeks. The closure of the Indian Trail Road Bridge is located on Indian Trail Road in Allen Township between Kohls Road and Millrace Road. The detour is in place and directs motorists to use the alternate route of Kreidersville Road/Walnut Drive to Route 248 (Lehigh Drive). Please utilize the marked detour route, be respectfully of private property and refrain from turnarounds in private driveways!
The road remains open to the Township Building property from the Kreidersvillle Road to Indian Trail Road.
Please allow extra time when traveling through this area, as this is a complete closure of the road segment containing the bridge structure. The Township will seek an updated timeline from PennDOT and report any updates when available.
