Median work begins tomorrow on Route 15 north of Adams

Starting tomorrow, access will become available to Old Cabin Hollow Road from northbound and southbound Route 15 and median work will begin. The changes will prevent left turns from southbound Route 15 to Franklin Church Road, and from northbound Route 15 onto Range End Road.

The changes will allow the contractor to reconfigure the mountable curb and turn lanes in the intersection. Once this work is complete, Range End Road traffic will be configured permanently for right turns only onto southbound Route 15.

During this work phase southbound Route 15 traffic wishing to turn onto Franklin Church Road will be detoured via Old Cabin Hollow Road to Clear View Road to Franklin Church Road. Northbound Route 15 traffic wishing to turn onto Range End Road will be detoured via Glenn Wood Drive to Range End Road.

This work will be completed in approximately 8 weeks.

This project consists of ramp acceleration and deceleration lane lengthening, and intersection safety improvements. The entire pavement width, including roadway and shoulders, will be resurfaced and all guide rail will be replaced.

Other work includes milling, pavement construction and reconstruction, subbase, drainage improvements, rock placement, rock slope excavation, concrete barrier, pavement markings, signing and other work in Franklin and Carroll townships, York County, and Huntington and Latimore townships in Adams County.

This entire project is expected to be completed in August 2023.
