Update for Northern Route 255 Project in Saint Marys, Week of June 10

Elk County
Update for Northern Route 255 Project in Saint Marys, Week of June 10

Saint Marys – Work to improve a northern section of Route 255 in the city of Saint Marys is continuing. The project stretches from the Tractor Supply Co. intersection to Route 120/State Street in Saint Marys. Work this year will concentrate on the section between Wendy’s and Satterlee & Sons.

Once the project completes in late summer 2014, travel along this section of Route 255 will be smoother and more efficient. PennDOT will issue regular updates on this project.

Activity the week of June 10 will include:

• The contractor will be working 24 hours per day starting on Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. and finishing Friday at 4:00 p.m.

MOTORIST ALERT: On Wednesday night between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. SR 255 will be restricted to one lane near the Ford Road intersection for the installation of a storm drainage pipe that crosses the roadway. Flaggers will be in place to direct traffic.

• On Monday, the contractor will be working on pavement markings throughout the project. Motorists should be alert for slow moving and stopped vehicles.

• The current traffic pattern, starting at the intersection at Tractor Supply and extending to the Iron Run Road intersection, restricts traffic to one lane northbound and one lane southbound with a center turning lane. This traffic pattern will remain in effect until further notice. The center turn lane is for turning movements only.

• The contractor will continue installing new storm drainage within the work area.

• The contractor will be installing conduit and foundations for new traffic signals at the Plaza Drive intersection and Ford Road intersection.

• Access to businesses within the work zone will be maintained during normal business hours.

All work is weather and schedule dependent. Motorists are advised to watch for slow-moving and stopped vehicles through the entire work zone. Motorists are advised to be cautious when traveling through the work zone and should obey the posted speed limit.

Overall work includes pavement repair, drainage improvements, addition of a right-turn lane for Route 255 northbound traffic at Vine Street, re-alignment of the Arch Street intersection, a right turn lane on Route 120 east for traffic heading south on Route 255, and other construction items. Dave Gutelius Excavating Inc. of Mifflinburg is the contractor on this $12.8 million project.

About a one-mile section of roadway separates this project from PennDOT’s other Route 255 project that stretches from north of Greenbriar Drive to just south of the Kersey/Route 948 intersection.
