Line painting will be performed this week in Lebanon County on eastbound I-78 from the I-81 split to the Route 72 overpass as part of a $5.5 million pavement preservation project.

The work is scheduled to take place from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 14, and Wednesday, Dec. 15.

Contractor JD Eckman, Inc., of Atglen, PA, will also be painting lines in Dauphin County on northbound I-81 from Exit 72 (Linglestown/Paxtonia) to just north of Exit 77 (Route 39/Manada Hill), and southbound I-81 from the rest area just south of Exit 80 (Route 743/Grantville/Hershey) to Exit 72.

PennDOT said in a release that this will be a “moving operation” and motorists should be alert, drive with caution and watch for slow-moving vehicles.
