Culvert Replacement Project to Resume on Route 641 in Cumberland County

Harrisburg, PA The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that a culvert replacement project is set to resume on Route 641 in Cumberland County. The bridge is located between Kough Road and Springfield Avenue in N. Newton Township and Newville Borough.

Weather permitting, work on this project will resume Monday, April 29. Work includes milling and paving. There will be lane restrictions during daylight hours with flaggers providing traffic control. This work will take about two weeks to complete.

This project consists of the replacement of an existing culvert with a precast box culvert, the construction of a retaining wall, and other miscellaneous construction.

Lobar Site Development, Inc., of Dillsburg, PA, is the contractor on this $1,474,943 project.

All work is expected to be completed by November 19, 2024.

Travelers are reminded to be alert for these operations, to obey work zone signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through work zones for their safety as well as for the safety of the road crews.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following local alerts on X.

High Visibility Reflective Address Sign – $20

If you called 911, could emergency personnel
your home or business quickly?

In an emergency, locating the address as soon as possible is the first step in saving lives and property. Time wasted searching for the proper address is something many 911-callers can’t afford. Proper marking of a home street address is the responsibility of the homeowner, but we, along with our emergency service partners, know that many homes within North Newton Township do not have their address clearly marked.

Your purchase of a Reflective Address Sign will greatly improve the ability of all emergency service providers to quickly and accurately locate those that need help anytime, day or night.

To order a sign for your home or business,
please call the township office at (717) 776-7665.

Only $20
