This work is part of a $6.9 million project to improve more than 24 miles of roadway in Centre and Clinton counties. PennDOT will issue updates as work progress requires.
Overall work will include milling, placement of binder and wearing courses, final paving, joint repairs, pipe lining and pipe replacement, guide rail updates, signal upgrades, ADA ramp replacement, pavement markings, and miscellaneous construction.
Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College, is the contractor on this project. PennDOT expects completion to occur in mid-November.
In addition, PennDOT is reminding area drivers of a coming closure and detour for a Clinton County bridge on Harley Drive (T-433). This state-owned bridge spans Mill Race in Pine Creek Township. The 14-foot bridge was built in 1911 and carries an average of 183 vehicles each day. Replacing the bridge will improve its rating from fair to good.
On Monday, Aug. 1, Harley Drive will be closed at the bridge and a detour will be in place. The detour will make use of Island Road, Stewart Road and Route 150 (Woodward Avenue). The detour will be in place throughout the project, which is expected to finish in mid-August.
This project is a partnership between PennDOT Clinton County Maintenance and Nestlerode Contracting Co., Inc. of Lock Haven. PennDOT maintenance will remove the existing structure, perform site excavation, and place backfill once the new box culvert is set. The contractor will set the new box culvert and perform final paving. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
