08 July 2024- The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that lane restrictions on northbound Route 15 in Adams County are being lifted today, Wednesday, July 3. The restrictions have been in place from Mile 5 to Mile 10 near Gettysburg for work associated with an ongoing pavement preservation project.

Long-term restrictions will resume on two sections of northbound Route 15 on Monday, July 15.

Weather permitting, left lane restrictions will be implemented on northbound Route 15 from the Maryland state line to the Route 134 (Taneytown Road) Exit, and from the Route 116 (Hanover Road) Exit to the Route 394 (Shrivers Corner Road) Exit.

The contractor will perform shoulder and guiderail upgrades, concrete road patching, diamond grinding of the pavement surface and adjacent structure repairs. In mid-September, the contractor will close the right lane and perform the same work.
