DUBOIS – Work to improve the Route 119/322 “Blinker Parkway” intersection in Sandy Township resumed this week, with paving work to continue through the weekend.
When overall work is finished, area drivers will be able to travel through a wider intersection with improved visibility and enhanced safety.
Through the weekend, area drivers can expect temporary lane closures and daylight flagging as the contractor completes the paving of the roadway.
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. Finish work will also include sign installation and pavement markings. Work is expected to last until mid-May.
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.
