DuBois, PA – The local enhancement project on Beaver Drive in DuBois that was supposed to begin yesterday has been pushed back until June 3.  This delay in start date is not expected to influence the completion date which is still expected before November 5.

The roadwork will include a sidewalk, ADA compliant ramps, and bus pull-off areas.

All work will take place during the daylight hours, and there will be flaggers to direct traffic. Please slow down in that area, turn on your headlights, and watch out for construction workers.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is alerting area drivers that a local enhancement project is set to begin Monday, June 3 along Beaver Drive in DuBois.

The work zone will stretch east from Division Street almost to Shaffer Road. Crews will be working to install sidewalk, ADA compliant ramps, and bus pull-off areas.

As work takes place, drivers may encounter intermittent flagging of traffic, if project activity makes it necessary. Drivers should always be alert for the potential of flaggers in the roadway.

All work will take place during daylight hours.

The City of DuBois is the project sponsor and Francis J. Palo, Inc. of Clarion, PA is the contractor for the $577,000 job. Completion is expected before November 5.

PennDOT reminds drivers to use caution in all work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
