The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is preparing to begin a $13.4 million project to improve the safety and efficiency of Depot Rd. in Harborcreek Township. 

The project includes improvements to 1.3 miles of Depot Rd. from just south of Interstate 90 to just north of McGill Rd. 

According to PennDOT, work will include reconstruction of the existing roadway, widening of the shoulders, adjusting the slope of the roadway, and the creation of a turn lane in front of Clark Elementary School. There will also be updates to drainage, pavement markings, signs and guiderails. 

PennDOT said construction is expected to begin on June 17, and is expected to be completed by October 2025. 

Work will be completed in four phases: 

  • Phase 1: The first phase is expected to be completed in 2024. It will include work throughout the project area and will require lane restrictions, traffic pattern shifts, and usage of temporary signals. 
  • Phase 2, 3, 4: Phases two, three and four are scheduled to take place in 2025. This will include work near the I-90 interchange, which will require a detour using Route 430 and I-90
