The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will begin roadway improvement work next week in Clinton County, focusing on Route 64 and Route 477. This work is part of a group contract to improve more than 38 miles of roadway in Centre, Clinton, Clearfield, Mifflin and Juniata counties. This project will improve roadway ride quality on nine routes in the five counties and extend the life of the roadway surface.
The week of June 19 will feature work in the following locations:
Micro-surfacing (thin overlay) on Route 64 from the I-80 interchange to Mill Hall. This work will take place during overnight hours of 8 p.m. To 6 a.m. Monday night through Thursday night, June 19 through 22.
Micro-surfacing on Route 477 from Salona to Mill Hall on Friday, June 23 during daylight hours.
Each work zone will feature an alternating traffic pattern controlled by flaggers in the roadway. Short travel delays should be expected and drivers should be alert for slow moving and stopped vehicles through the work zone. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
Asphalt Paving Systems, Inc. of Hammonton, New Jersey is the contractor on this $2.1 million project, which is expected to finish by late September. PennDOT will issue updates on this work as work locations change.
PennDOT reminds drivers to be cautious in work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
