PennDOT announced this week some of the road projects they will be working on starting this week.

They include the following:


PennDOT is continuing bridge repair that began in mid-April on eight Interstate 80 structures near DuBois.

Beginning Tuesday, May 28, westbound lane closures will extend from mile-marker 102 to mile-marker 98, near the Falls Creek exit. Eastbound lane closures will run from mile-marker 98 to mile-marker 101 near the DuBois exit.

This will allow the contractor to work on five structures at the same time.

The work includes wing stem replacement, concrete repairs, approach slab replacement, beam end repair and other miscellaneous construction.

Work is expected to last into November.


PennDOT announced that restoration of Route 3002 (Laurel Mills Road) near Ridgway is to begin Tuesday, May 28, to provide drainage improvements, guide rail replacement, pavement markings and other miscellaneous construction.

Flaggers will enforce alternating traffic patterns throughout the work zone, which will encompass two miles west of Ridgway and continuing nine miles toward the village of Hallton, but the road will be closed from the intersection with Arroyo Road to the Irwin Run Bridge for approximately two weeks.

During this closure, traffic will be re-routed onto Route 949 and Route 3001 (Belltown Road). The road will remain open, however, to residents and local traffic.

Work is expected to be completed by mid-August.
