LITITZ BOROUGH - PennDOT announced today that a contractor is scheduled to perform pavement repairs next week on Route 772 (Main Street) between Water Street and Locust Street in Lititz Borough, Lancaster County.

Weather permitting, work will be performed during daylight hours Monday, August 8, and if needed, on Tuesday, August 9. Work is expected to begin at approximately 7:00 AM. 

The majority of the work will be in the eastbound lane of Route 772. After completing work in the eastbound lanethe contractor will switch to the westbound lane. The lane of work will be closed and flaggers will direct alternating directions of traffic through the work zone using the open lane.

These repairs are in advance of a resurfacing project on Route 772 (Main Street) in Lititz Borough from Route 501 (Broad Street) eastward to the borough line. Construction activities include base repairs, milling and overlay, and other miscellaneous activities. Also included is work on Water Street (Route 1035) from Route 772 (Main Street)to the Warwick Township line.

An update will be issued when construction activities resume later this summer.
