PennDOT wants people to know that starting next week work is scheduled on Route 407 from the junction with Routes 6 & 11 in South Abington Township, up to Venard Road.

PennDOT plans to have one lane open during the work.

"They're taking out the old road and paving it in four sections. The first section will take about a week and that's right here at rt. 6 and 11 to about where the CVS is up on Venard Road, up that way," said James May with PennDOT.

Work is scheduled to start on Tuesday.
