This work will not take place in Thompsontown.  Milling on Route 333 near the Borough of Mifflin from Main Street to Valley Street will take place Thursday and Friday (May 18th and 19th).  Work will impact street parking with “No Parking” signs in place where necessary.  A daylight alternating traffic pattern will be controlled by flaggers.  Short travel delays should be expected and drivers should be alert for slow moving and stopped vehicles through the work zone.
