DUBOIS – Work to improve the Route 119/322 “Blinker Parkway” intersection in Sandy Township will resume on Monday. When work is finished, area drivers will be able to travel through a wider intersection with improved visibility and enhanced safety.
Beginning Monday, area drivers can expect temporary lane closures and daylight flagging as the contractor begins work on final milling and paving of the roadway.
Finish work will also include sign installation and pavement markings. Drivers should expect short delays through this area. Work is expected to last until mid-May.
Overall project work has included construction of turning lanes, roadway widening, slight roadway re-alignment, drainage improvements, new curbing and sidewalk, curb ramps, and traffic signal upgrades.
All work is weather and schedule dependent. HRI Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $1.3 million project. PennDOT reminds drivers to be cautious in all work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
