DUBOIS –You may encounter brief travel delays on Route 255 north of DuBois. PennDOT says work crews will be taking core boring samples near Hungry Hollow Road as part of an upcoming bridge replacement project. An alternating traffic pattern will be enforced by flaggers just north of the Treasure Lake gate. This project runs through January 27th.
CLEARFIELD – If you drive on Routes 219, 879 or 453, or 53 in Clearfield County, you may encounter some tree trimming and tree removal work in the next few months. PennDOT says the project started this week on Route 453 in Knox Township. Additional work will take place on Route 219 in Bell and Greenwood townships, Route 879 in Goshen and Lawrence townships, and Route 53 in Cooper Township. Flagging crews will be enforcing alternating traffic patterns through the work areas. PennDOT says the tree trimming and tree removal work is done in order to provide “daylighting” to the roadway, allowing sunlight to speed snow and ice melt during the winter months. It also enhances sight distance and lessens the potential for old and dead trees to fall onto the roadways.
DUBOIS – – Additional core boring work is planned in the DuBois area later this month near four Interstate 80 bridges. The work will impact the eastbound and westbound bridges at exit 97 and mile marker 99 near DuBois. Short-term single-lane closures may be necessary on the Interstate when that project begins on Monday, January 23rd.
