After 'beating,' road fix
WARMINSTER The state Department of Transportation this week began a months-long, $4.4 million project to repave 15 miles of County Line Road in an effort to alleviate the effects of the "beating" the roadway suffered during the winter, a PennDot official said.
The resurfacing project started Monday night near Route 611, said agency spokesman Charles Metzger, and crews will continue working for several weeks moving south, toward York Road.
Ultimately, Metzger said, the project will be completed around the end of October at the intersection of Bustleton Avenue, near Feasterville.
Initial construction is taking place during the workweek starting at 7 p.m. and ending at 5 a.m., with the road reduced to one lane in each direction. County Line Road carries between 18,000 and 25,000 vehicles per day, Metzger said, depending on the section. - Chris Palmer
