Road Work Update for Potter/McKean County, Week of May 24

Coudersport, PA – A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) road improvement project for McKean and Potter counties got underway recently. 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. Both counties will see additional improvements in the form of more than 45 miles of roadway sealcoating.  Colder, wet weather this week has pushed some work to a late start this week, carrying over into next week.

May 19 and 20 will feature seal coat work in Potter County at the following locations:

·         Route 2002 (Branch Road/West Street) from Route 44 to Galeton

·         Route 4008 (Branch Road) from Route 44 to Route 4011 (Peet Brook Road).

·         Route 1008 (Cross Road) from Route 49 to Route 1003 (South Street/California Branch Road/Main Street/Loucks Mills Road)

The week of May 23 will feature seal coat work along:

·         Route 3001 (East Fork Road) from Wharton to Cherry Springs

Additionally, cold, wet weather postponed milling and paving work at the Route 219/Route 6 intersection at Lantz Corners in McKean County for the second time. This work is now expected to take place on Tuesday, May 24.

Work zones feature a daylight alternating traffic pattern, controlled by flaggers in the roadway. Short travel delays should be expected. 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.
