Night-time paving will cause long delays
DUBOIS – Roadway improvement work is continuing on Route 255 near the Interstate 80 DuBois/101 interchange. When work is complete 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.
The week of Sept. 16 will feature the following activity:
• On Monday and Tuesday, the contractor will be working on drainage at various locations. No travel delays are expected.
• During the day on Wednesday, roadway milling will be flagged as crews work to mill roadway “bumps” at various locations.
• Wednesday through Saturday, the contractor will be paving through the entire project. This work will take place at night from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
• As night-time paving takes place, motorists should expect long delays through the project area.
PennDOT reminds drivers to remain alert and proceed through the work zone with caution.
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.
All work is weather and schedule dependent. New Enterprise Stone and Lime Inc. is the contractor on this $3.4 million project.
