Clearfield, PA – If you travel on Route 322 near Clearfield, you’ll run into some delays next week. PennDOT will begin roadway improvement work next week on Route 322 in Clearfield Borough and Lawrence Township, with the work zone stretching from Brewery Hill to Clearfield Creek.

The project will improve roadway integrity, ride quality, and safety along the route.

Signage for the project is being set this week, with traffic control set-up to follow and work beginning June 12, weather permitting.

The goals of this Route 322 work are to improve drainage, update guiderail, reconstruct the roadway, and pave. Signal and safety improvements will also be performed at the 322 intersection with Leonard Street, Clearfield Mall Entrance, and Woodland Road.

Traffic control through the project will consist of daylight flagging and alternating traffic patterns. Drivers will need to remain alert for flaggers in and near the roadway.

PennDOT expects the project to finish by the end of November, with all work weather and schedule dependent. New Enterprise Stone & Line of New Enterprise, PA is the contractor on this $1.73 million job.

Drivers are reminded to move through work zones with caution, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
