DuBOIS – Traffic delays should be
expected tomorrow, June 17, as work continues on PennDOT’s Route 255 project
near I-80. Crews will be setting a beam tomorrow on a small bridge just north
of the Treasure Lake entrance.
In order to set the beam, the
temporary barrier will be removed from the work zone and an alternating traffic
pattern will be enforced. Drivers need to be alert for flaggers in the roadway
tomorrow from 7 a.m. into the afternoon hours. Once the beam is set, northbound
and southbound lanes will reopen to traffic with width restrictions.
This project started in May of 2013
and has included milling and paving, bridge deck repair, cleaning and upgrading
of pipe culverts and inlets, water-line extension, and installation of new
traffic signals at the I-80 ramps. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
New Enterprise Stone and Lime Inc. is the contractor on this $3.7 million
