The light at the intersection of Route 124 and Chambers Road in York Township is coming down.
It was expected to be removed today, but the work had to be pushed back because of the cold weather, said Greg Penny, a spokesman for the state Department of Transportation. The frigid temperatures can cause problems with line painting.
The job is now scheduled for Tuesday, he said.
The light is coming down so that crews can widen and add more lanes on Mount Rose Avenue, PennDOT says. Also, the traffic light is too close to the intersection of routes 24 and 124.
The removal of the light is expected to improve traffic flow and safety.
A stop sign will be installed on Chambers Road where it connects with Route 124. Left turns from Chambers Road now are prohibited, PennDOT says.
Crews started in April on the $3.2 million project to widen Route 124 between Hartford Road in Springettsbury Township and Chambers Road in York Township. It is expected to be finished in the spring of 2015, PennDOT says.
