Road work in McKean & Potter counties

Bradford, PA – A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) road improvement project is underway in McKean and Potter counties. The project will bring improvements across more than 16 miles of road surfaces in the two counties and provide smoother, safer travel for regional motorists.
This week, crews are concentrating their efforts in McKean County, with milling and paving set for today and tomorrow on Route 246 from the Route 6464/246 intersection to the village of Prentiss Vale. Wednesday and Thursday will bring milling and paving activity to Route 219 and Route 6 in the area of Lantz Corners
Each work location will feature a daylight alternating traffic pattern, controlled by flaggers in the roadway. Short travel delays should be expected.
Work includes milling and resurfacing, along with base repair and drainage improvements. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $5 million job, which is expected to finish by the end of September.
PennDOT will issue updates on work locations for this project as progress allows.
