DUBOIS – Roadway improvement work is continuing on Route 255 near the Interstate 80 DuBois/101 interchange.
When work is complete in mid-October, a smoother roadway surface and new traffic signals at the I-80 ramps will provide area drivers with more efficient travel and improved traffic flow.
Crews will be working through Saturday to pave along the entire length of the work zone. The work zone stretches from the Treasure Lake main entrance south to the new Fairfield Inn.
Flaggers are in place along the roadway, to enforce an alternating traffic pattern. Motorists should expect long traffic delays while the paving operation takes place.
PennDOT reminds drivers to remain alert and proceed through the work zone with caution. Normal work hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Overall work on Route 255 includes 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 $3.4 million project.
