DUBOIS Work to improve the Route 119/322 “Blinker Parkway” intersection in Sandy Township is continuing, with an update for the week of May 13 noted below. When work completes late this year, area drivers will be able to travel through a wider intersection with improved visibility and enhanced safety.
During the week of May 13, area drivers can expect:
- Roadway widening, excavation and drainage work
- Completion of temporary signal work, with temporary signals operational on Tuesday, May 14. Existing, old signals will then be removed.
- Utility relocation work will continue.
No traffic pattern changes will be in place at this time, although short travel delays are possible. PennDOT reminds drivers to be cautious, watch for slow moving and stopped vehicles through the work zone, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
Overall work will include 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. Work is scheduled to end by early December of this year. H.R. I. Inc of State College is the contractor on this $1.3 million project.
