DUBOIS – Work to improve Route 255 near the Interstate 80 DuBois/101 interchange that began in April, is continuing. When work completes in mid-October, a smoother roadway surface and new traffic signals at the I-80 ramps will provide area drivers with more efficient travel and improved traffic flow.
Work this week will include milling the existing roadway from north of the Treasure Lake entrance to south of the Fairfield Inn. 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. The crew will start
With work activity picking up, motorists can expect to encounter flaggers in the work zone and travel delays. Drivers should give themselves extra time to travel through the area. PennDOT reminds drivers to remain alert and proceed through the work zone with caution.
During this week’s work on Route 255, there will also be work on a separate project south of the I-80 interchanges. The work zone of this project stretches from Shaffer Road to the Fairfield Inn.
All work is weather and schedule dependent. Work is scheduled to end by mid-October of this year. New Enterprise Stone and Lime Inc. is the contractor on this $3.4 million project.
