[ARCHIVED] Mayview Road to reopen by late October


UPDATE (9/7/21):

The Boyce-Mayview intersection, including the Mayview Road closure, is expected to reopen to traffic by the end of October 2021, staying open during the late fall and winter. However, flaggers will direct alternating, one-lane traffic as needed to complete utility work.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) District 11 expects to resume major road work sometime in Spring 2022, with complete closures of Boyce Road and Mayview Road, in order to replace a culvert, add turning lanes and make other improvements.

Due to unforeseen issues with utility line relocations, PennDOT is not able to complete the Boyce-Mayview intersection improvement project this year as originally planned.

PennDOT is working with the project contractor to restore the impacted portions of Mayview and Boyce to a safe condition and reopen the roads to their previous configuration.

Flaggers will direct alternating, single-lane traffic while utility work is completed.


"Due to unforeseen utility relocation issues, the Department will not be able to complete the Mayview/Boyce Road Culvert project this year.

"The Department has explored the option to open the road, while remaining utility work is completed with daily roadway restrictions in place.

"The Department is working with our contractor, Frank Gavlik and Sons, Inc., to restore the impacted portions of SR 3005 (Mayview Road) and SR 3006 (Boyce Road) to a safe condition and reopen the project to its previous configuration, to allow partial traffic flow, and utility work to be completed.

"Users can expect flagging operations for alternating traffic with one lane closed while utility work is completed.
"We anticipate opening the road by the end of October 2021.
"It should be anticipated that PennDOT improvement work will resume in the Spring of 2022 with complete closures to Boyce and Mayview Roads, in order to install a new and much larger box culvert, as well as to add turning lanes and improve the design of the intersection.

The exact date will be determined during future discussion between the District and contractor. More information will be provided as it becomes available."
