STATE COLLEGE – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Route 322 (Mount Nittany Expressway) improvement work is continuing with work currently focused on the bridge at the Oak Hall interchange.
The eastbound left lane closure remains in effect, with bridge work at this location expected to continue through July. A reduced speed of 45 miles per hour and an eleven-foot lane-width restriction remain in effect. The work is part of the Route 322 (Mount Nittany Expressway) roadway improvement project that began in 2014.
On Monday and Tuesday, long-term signage will be placed in preparation for eastbound and westbound lane closures the entire length of the project. The project stretches from the Boalsburg interchange to the Interstate 99 interchange at Innovation Park.
Through the 2015 construction season, overall work will include patching, base repair, paving, bridge and deck repairs and miscellaneous items. Repairs will improve the ride quality of the roadway surface and allow the structures to remain in service for years to come.
Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $5.1 million job. The project was made possible last year by ACT 89 funding.
Drivers should proceed with caution through the work zone and be prepared for construction vehicles entering and exiting the roadway. PennDOT reminds motorists to drive with caution through work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
