DuBois – The traffic lights at the intersection of Route 255 and Shaffer Road in DuBois will be flashing red until at least Thursday, April 6th. A crash on Saturday, March 25, damaged the signal controller cabinet, and PennDOT says April 6th is the earliest it can be fixed.

 

The intersection should be treated as a four-way stop until the new controller is installed. The controller cabinet also operates the flashing lights and gates at the railroad crossing, so they will not be functional until repairs are complete. Be mindful of the railroad tracks at the intersection and avoid stopping on the tracks.

Stop signs have been set up at all four points of the intersection.

 


DUBOIS – The safety improvement project on Routes 255 and 219 through DuBois has entered a new phase.

According to PennDOT, work to install new traffic signal cabinets and controllers started this week at the intersections of the two major roadways between Treasure Lake and the Clearfield-Jefferson County line near Falls Creek. The main goal of the project is to improve PennDOT’s management of traffic flow through DuBois when traffic needs to be re-rerouted off Interstate 80.

You may encounter flaggers in the roadway at these intersections while the work is done this week, and there could be minor delays. The overall $1.2 million project is expected to be completed in December.


CLEARFIELD – Starting Monday, March 27th you may encounter lane closures on Route 153 as preliminary work for an Elk County bridge replacement project is scheduled to begin.

According to PennDOT, the poorly rated, 52-year-old bridge which spans Toby Creek in Horton Township will be completely replaced this year. The initial stage of the project involves clearing trees near the bridge and placing signs, and then a temporary roadway will be installed for the duration of the project. You may encounter brief delays and lane closures during daylight hours.

PennDOT says the project should be completed by late October.
