PennDOT Crew Lays 12 Miles Of Cones For No Reason

(YORK SPRINGS) - A crew of 22 PennDOT workers that spent three hours laying traffic cones along a portion of Route 15 southbound on Friday have admitted they did so for no good reason.

"We're not performing road work there nor do we plan to," conceded crew spokesman Paul Gleason.

The cones, which effectively closed off the passing lane on a 12-mile portion of the highway in York and Adams counties, caused traffic delays during the busy Friday afternoon rush hour and on several occasions during the holiday weekend.

"We're sorry about that," Gleason said.

Gleason said he was not sure when the cones would be lifted and the lane reopened. "We're hoping to make some progress by noon on Thursday," he added.
