BELLEFONTE – With Interstate 80 bridge preservation work ongoing, PennDOT is advising drivers who are traveling for Penn State home football games that travel delays are likely as the interstate is restricted to one lane in work zones.
On home-game weekends, drivers should be alert for slowed or stopped traffic between mile-marker 173 at Lamar in Clinton County and mile-marker 161 at Bellefonte in Centre County. Traffic is likely to back up at the Bellefonte/161 westbound off ramp. Pennsylvania State Police will direct traffic at the off-ramp to improve the traffic flow.
Message boards will be in place alerting drivers of delays. PennDOT’s work to repair six I-80 bridges in Centre County will continue through November of this year and will impact all home football game traffic.
Motorists are also reminded of standard delays they may encounter after the games on Route 26 northbound.
