Roads in Elk and Cameron counties will also see improvements
CLEARFIELD – Work to improve some roadways in Clearfield County got under way Tuesday, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
Crews are working to extend the useful life of the pavement and improve the ride quality of roadway surfaces. Work will include milling, scratch and resurfacing.
Work began Tuesday on Route 36 in Clearfield County from the Cambria County line to the village of LaJose. This work is expected to take about two weeks. Once work on Route 36 is complete, crews will move to Route 2014 (Village Road) in Hyde and then to Route 1003 (Martin Street Extension) in Clearfield.
Drivers should expect short travel delays as flaggers enforce alternating traffic patterns through the work zones. Work will take place during daylight hours.
Later this summer, roads in Elk and Cameron County will also see improvements through this contract. Those roads include:
- Route 255 (Maurus Street) in the city of St. Marys
- Route 1001 (St Marys Street) in the city of St. Marys
- Route 1005 (Theresia Street) in the city of St. Marys
- Route 120 in the village of Canoe Run
This project will address 29 miles of roadway on various routes across three counties with a contract value of $6.3 million. Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. of State College is the contractor on this project, which is expected to finish by the end of October.
PennDOT reminds drivers to be cautious in all work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
