Section of Route 46 to Close to Through Traffic Project work continuing through November

Port Allegheny, PA – A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) roadway improvement project is continuing on Route 46 in McKean County. The project will result in five miles of new roadway and an additional 15 miles of improved roadway surface. The road will be closed to through traffic on Sept. 22 from the McKean/Cameron County line to the Route 6 intersection near Smethport.

Full depth reclamation work began Sept. 12 on this section of Route 46 and problems with traffic using the road have persisted. Starting Thursday, this section of Route 46 will be closed to all through traffic. Flaggers and pilot vehicles will be used to provide access to local residents and drivers conducting business along this section.

A detour for all non-local traffic will be in place. PennDOT’s official detour will make use of Route 6, Route 120, and Route 155. The detour is expected to last through October.

IA Construction Inc. is the contractor on this $3.13 million project that is expected to finish in late November.

PennDOT reminds motorists to follow detour signage, use caution in work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.



As a resident who lives on Route 46 where the roadwork has been going on: The DUMP TRUCKS working on the road need to START TRAVELING THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT OF 40 to 45!!! In case you drivers can't read the signs; the 45 limit starts before the Crosby ball field and ends past the Bucktail Inn. There are many small children who live in the village of Crosby and live near the road. Drive as if your family lives there!

Also need to taper the side roads. Motorcycles are not able to even cross over 46.

Just saying ... Leave it to the lowest possible bidder ... Demoncrats just want it done ... Election year ... Thank you Gov. wolfe

Lowest bidder??? Clearly you have know idea how the work is completed. They have to follow blue prints and spec's. Additionally there are several on site inspectors and sometimes even an on site engineer that are there to make sure the projects are in fact completed as the blue prints and spec's depict. Also ALL construction companies have to be pre-approved (which is not easy) before they are even able to bid PADOT projects. It is sooo nice to see that our rural area is finally getting some money to have nice safe roads to travel on. The construction process is a short and minor inconvenience.

Minor inconvenience. Tell that to the people that who live along the portion that is being ground up. That are now being told that they will not be able to drive home for two weeks

You should see them go through Ormsby's
45 MPH zone! Would think the company might pay more attention to the liability.

This is no MINOR inconvenience. Understand that it HAS to be done, but really no consideration or communication has been provided to residents.

You have a better idea? you construction genius you! Lol

You are probably the same people that bitch about rough roads etc. I get it though, it's just the type of person you for the speeding, no excuse for that and you all should make some phone calls to the RIGHT offices and express your concerns. Don't bitch on here, as it just comes across as bitching.

If there are all these specs then why does every hawbaker road break apart completely about 4 feet in from the berm? Why can you paddle a canoe down the ruts when it rains on a hawbaker road? Dont see this on amiesite roads
