Work on Route 30 in Lancaster County that has caused headaches for commuters in York County has wrapped up, according to the state Department of Transportation.

PennDOT maintenance crews finished work on the westbound lanes about 4 p.m. Wednesday, a day earlier than expected, according to a news release.

The work closed one lane of eastbound traffic Monday and Tuesday from the Susquehanna River to Prospect Road in Lancaster County, but drivers waiting to merge sat in traffic for miles, at times stretching back to the Hallam Road exit in York County.

Workers were able to complete both the left and right westbound lanes on Wednesday, PennDOT said.

Crews fixed numerous potholes along that stretch of Route 30 that grew worse over the winter months. The work will maintain the highway until a resurfacing project next year.
