SR 981, Section Q20
Consistent Corridor Design
While the three projects will be designed and constructed separately, all three will include similar improvements to create a consistent and cohesive corridor. A two-lane typical section will be used throughout the project. The improved roadway will have wider 12-foot travel lanes and eight-foot shoulders. It will be designed for a 45-mile-per-hour speed limit. Curves and grades will be improved throughout the corridor and the new roadway will be designed to fit community context.
Examples of what this roadway will look like can be found north of the project where PennDOT previously completed the Route 981, Section V10 project near the Arnold Palmer Regional Airport.
The SR 981 corridor improvements will consist of three projects separate projects, each with logical termini and independent utility. These projects make financial sense and create shorter impacts to the community during construction. The three projects are:
