Work begins Thursday on the $1 million project to improve the intersection of Babcock Boulevard and Warrendale Road near Pine-Richland High School, weather permitting.
PennDOT District 11, in cooperation with the Pine-Richland School District, announced the start date for the project that includes roadway widening, traffic signal installation and resurfacing to improve the intersection and the entrance to the Pine-Richland High School. Overall work will conclude in early 2013.

Traffic patterns will change during construction; flag crews will control traffic as needed, the announcement said.
