DUBOIS – Roadway improvement work is continuing on Route 255 near the Interstate 80 DuBois/101 interchange. PennDOT now expects most work to be complete by the end of this year with a smoother roadway surface and new traffic signals at the I-80 ramps providing area drivers with more efficient travel and improved traffic flow.
The week of Oct. 21 will feature the following activity:
- The contractor will place and complete shoulder backup on Saturday.
- New guide rail will be placed beginning Tuesday, with completion anticipated on Thursday.
- Sawing and sealing of the pavement will be performed after the guide rail work is complete.
All of the work in this area is expected to have an impact on traffic. PennDOT reminds drivers to remain alert and proceed through the work zone with caution.
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 $3.7 million project.
