I travel that road everyday and saw alot of "standing around leaning on shovels, etc.". Any work being done seemed like an after thought!!

How in the heck are they going to expand the road to five lanes up to Dart Drive? The road is narrow enough with businesses very close to the traffic along that stretch between Radio Rd (the light at the mall and the old Hot and Now) up to Dart Dr. How is traffic to merge to three lanes in that small area to continue on Carlisle then? Who designs this crap?!

Agreed, it sure was this morning! It took me more than 30 minutes to go from Cross Keys to the mall area.

Did you see the new PennDOT approved work shirt? Yes, it has the pocket sewn on upside down that way the PennDot worker can just stick the shovel handle up in the pocket so he doesn't even have to hold it with his hands. Genious!

It is a total mess and it will only get worse. It took me 30 minutes to get from the Sheetz to Cross Keys at 9am - will be taking alternate routes to avoid this travisty.

Wow, an alternate route? How did you ever come up with that bright idea? They should put up a sign to suggest an alternate route since it sounds like most people can't figure that out on their own. Why wouldn't you expect delays with a major project like this on a major road?

Enjoyed the sarcasm. Delays are expected, but this was beyond the pail.

Yidiot! Alternate route? Rt 194 was backed up as bad as or worse than 94 because of your "alternate" route!

Penny, two days in a row sat in line forever, backed up to Cross Keys! How can you have a road that is five lanes wide and you cant figure out a way to keep two of them open? Hard to swallow with that foot in your mouth,ah Penny?

Yidiot??? First of all, it is not "my" alternate route and secondly, route 194 was backed up because of the work being done on 94. I would have thought that was fairly obvious!

Other states have the intelligence of doing major work like this at night when traffic volume is light which enables the work to get done faster and more efficient and the workers aren't subject to the summer sun.

It's a simple calculation, State numbered Routes are too congested with traffic for this to be done in the day....period.

Welcome to PA, expect major delays .
