Update for Kylertown/I- 80 Night Work
Expect delays next this on Route 53
CLEARFIELD –Bridge replacement work on eastbound Interstate 80 near the Kylertown/133 interchange will feature night work the week of June 11. The two eastbound Kylertown bridges, which date from the original build of I-80, are being replaced this year. PennDOT replaced the westbound bridges in 2011.
On Monday, June 11, crews will begin demolition of the passing lane portion of the eastbound bridge over Route 53. This will be overnight work from 6 p.m.to 6 a.m. each day through Friday morning. This work will delay traffic on Route 53, where flaggers will enforce an alternating traffic pattern. Drivers on Route 53 can expect delays of up to 15 minutes while demolition is in progress.
Updated information on the project is available on message boards and through the Highway Advisory Radio System at 1640 on the am dial. Eastbound traffic is reduced to a single lane through the work area. The lane width through the I-80 eastbound work zone is 12-feet.
Work to replace the I-80 eastbound bridges at the Kylertown interchange will continue through the end of the year. All work is weather and schedule dependent. Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. is the contractor on this $10 million project.
