Clearfield, PA – Woodland Road near Clearfield is going to be closed off for the entire day on Thursday, so adjust your plans if you need to travel through that part of Clearfield tomorrow.

Woodland Road between the 14th Street intersection and the 13th Street/Dorey Street intersection will be closed from just after midnight early Thursday morning to 5 p.m. Thursday.

That part of the project is only expected to take one day, but remember that a more long-term lane closure will remain for other parts of the project in that area near the Clearfield Mall.

The entire project is expected to be done by mid-November.
