Roadwork on I-80 Eastbound in Clearfield County

Clearfield, PA – If you travel on eastbound I-80 in Clearfield County, you might hit some roadwork and delays.

Work location details are:
The right (travel) lane is closed between mile markers 135 and 138 due to a preservation project between Penfield and Kylertown.
At mile marker 123, the Woodland/Shawville Interchange is being rebuilt and traffic is being diverted onto a temporary bridge spanning Route 970.

Although the preservation project is expected to be completed this November, the Woodland/Shawville interchange project is more long-term and could last for the construction seasons for multiple years, possibly until 2022.

If you frequently use I-80 eastbound in that part of Clearfield County, build some extra time and flexibility into your commute.

Give yourself a few extra minutes in case you run into traffic. That way you won’t feel rushed and be tempted to speed or commit any other traffic violations in an attempt to catch up.
