PennDOT to Repair Route 625 in Lancaster County
Prep work starts March 11 in advance of contract paving this summer

March 9, 2015

Harrisburg – PennDOT announced today that Wednesday, March 11, weather permitting, construction crews will start work on Route 625 in northeastern Lancaster County.

The $2,685,743 contract was awarded to Reading Materials, Inc., of Skippack, Montgomery County. The contract includes tree trimming, drainage improvements, roadway base repair, milling, bituminous resurfacing, new signs, and pavement markings on an 8.24-mile section of Route 625 from Route 23 in East Earl Township through the Village of Bowmansville to the Lancaster-Berks County Line in Brecknock Township. Work under this construction contract is scheduled to be completed by the end of August. 

PennDOT advises those who travel Route 625 that they may encounter single-lane traffic restrictions with flaggers assisting them through the work zone on weekdays after 8:30 AM. Motorists are reminded to be alert for these operations, to obey work zone signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through work zones, not only for their safety, but for the safety of the road crews.

Sections of Route 625, known locally as Reading Road, average between 5,000 and 6,000 vehicles traveled daily. To avoid delays, travelers should allow for additional time in their plans or seek an alternate route.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 700 traffic cameras, 94 of which are in the Midstate.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.

Pennsylvania Yellow Dot Program

Pennsylvania’s Yellow Dot Program was created to assist citizens in the “golden hour” of emergency care following a traffic accident when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. Placing a yellow dot in your vehicle’s rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need.

The program is a cooperative effort among the Pennsylvania Departments of Transportation, Health and Aging; the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission and First Responders and local law enforcement.

How does it work?

Participants complete a personal information form, which includes the participant’s name, contact information, emergency contact information, medical history and medications, allergies and the participant’s doctors’ names. A photo – showing only the participant’s head and shoulders – is then taped to the front of the completed information sheet.

The yellow dot decal provided in the program kit is placed in the lower left corner of the participant’s vehicle’s rear windshield. The decal should be no higher than 3 inches from the bottom of the windshield. This decal alerts first responders that vital information can be found in the vehicle.

Place the completed information sheet, with the attached picture, into the Yellow Dot folder, and then place the folder into the vehicle’s glove box.

Brecknock Township has a supply of these Pamphlets at the township office. Feel free to stop by during our regular business hours Mon. – Fri. 9 am – 5 pm and pick up a copy.
