Detour Ends Tomorrow on Potter County Improvement Job

Galeton, PA – By evening hours tomorrow, September 2, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will lift a detour and open Route 44 between the village of Oleona and the Lycoming County line. A closure and detour have been in place since early July, when work resumed on this project to rehabilitate more than 50 miles of weight restricted roadway on Routes 44 and 144 in Potter County. Once the road re-opens, the detour using Routes 220, 120, and 144 will be lifted.

The overall project began last summer and included drainage improvements, full depth roadway reclamation, guide rail updates, and paving on Routes 44 and 144. Other work zones have included Route 144 from PennDOT’s Germania stockpile to the borough of Galeton; Route 44 from Cherry Springs State Park north to Sweden Valley and Route 6; Route 44 from Cherry Springs State Park to the village of Carter Camp; and Route 44 from Carter Camp to Sweden Valley.

All remaining work in the Oleona/Lycoming County line construction zone will be done during daylight hours, with flaggers enforcing an alternating traffic pattern. Work is expected to be complete in mid-October.

This two-year project was made possible through a partnership between PennDOT and industry partners Shell, Tenaska, and Dominion Transmission. The industry partners contributed almost $2 million, with PennDOT funds coming from money dedicated to upgrading weight restricted highways through ACT 89, the state’s transportation funding plan. Making these improvements will result in removal of the current weight restrictions.

Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College has been the contractor on this $17.5 million project, which is expected to finish in October.

PennDOT thanks area drivers for their patience and cooperation during this project.
