Third traffic control phase starts

The third traffic control phase starts next week at a roundabout project at the intersection of Route 94 (Carlisle Pike), Route 394 (Hunterstown Road), and Stoney Point Road (Route 1007) in the Village of Hampton, Reading Township, Adams County.

The PennDOT project starts Monday, June 29, with Carlisle Pike reduced to a single lane at the intersection. Carlisle Pike’s southbound lane will be closed. The northbound lane will remain open with temporary signals allowing alternating directions of traffic to proceed through the single-lane section of roadway. A 10-foot maximum vehicle width restriction will be in place.

These conditions will remain in effect for about two months.
