Road Work Update for McKean and Potter Counties, Week of Aug. 29

Bradford, PA – A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) road improvement project that began in May continues 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. Both counties will see additional improvements in the form of more than 45 miles of roadway sealcoating.  
PennDOT expects the week of August 29 to feature work at the following locations:

·  Milling and paving on Route 219 at Owens Way

·  Placement of shoulder back-up on Route 6 from Sweden Valley to Potato City

·  Milling and paving on Route 6 west of Galeton

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.
