PennDOT: $58M interstate project behind schedule

September 20, 2018 GMT

YORK, Pa. (AP) — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation say a $58 million construction project in York County is behind schedule.

Work on the project at Interstate 83 and Mt. Rose Avenue started in 2015 and was scheduled to finish this year. PennDOT says weather and contracting issues have caused work to stall.

PennDOT spokesman Mike Crochunis says officials are in negotiations with the contractor. Crochunis says PennDOT will be working through 2019.

The Maryland-based firm Cherry Hill Construction Inc. was selected for the project. Cherry Hill Construction’s parent company, Tutor Perini, recently added a new project superintendent to help with operations.

The finished project will realign the roadways and widen I-83.
