CLEARFIELD – The state Department of Transportation announces a traffic shift for its U.S. Route 219 job north of Falls Creek.
On Friday, motorists will experience a shift in traffic, as concrete patching operations continue. The southbound passing (left) lane will be closed through the entire project area, while the southbound travel (right) lane will be re-opened. The project area extends from the signal at Sheetz, north to the end of the four-lane highway.This traffic shift is expected to be in place through mid-July, with all work weather-dependent.
Drivers should remain alert through the work zone. Delays may be experienced through the area, with work also taking place on a different U.S. 219 project just outside of DuBois.
Contractor on the $2.2 million job is HRI Inc.
PennDOT expects the entire project to be complete by mid-September this year.
PennDOT reminds motorists to drive with caution through this and all work zones, stay alert for stopped or slowed traffic, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
