Night paving planned
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.
The week of Sept. 23 will feature the following activity:
- Night paving will continue Monday through Friday. Motorists should expect long delays through the project area between the hours of 6 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.
- Work between the hours of 5:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. is not expected to impact traffic.
PennDOT reminds drivers to remain alert and proceed through the work zone with caution.
Work is expected to progress to the I-80 ramps this week.
Overall work on Route 255 will include 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.
