Night Work Next Week on Route 255 Project South of St Marys

Night Work Next Week on Route 255 Project South of St Marys

Saint Marys – As work to improve Route 255, south of Saint Marys is winding down, the project will feature night work next week. The work zone stretches from north of Greenbriar Drive (Township Road 593) to just south of the Route 948 intersection in Fox Township. When the project is finished next month, travel along this section of Route 255 will be smoother and more efficient.

Activity the week of Aug. 19 will include:
• Starting Tuesday evening, Aug. 20, night-time paving will take place from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Paving work is expected to run through 6 a.m. Friday morning, Aug. 23. One northbound and one southbound lane will remain open during the majority of this work. Flaggers will be utilized when paving near side-roads, including the intersection with Route 948.At locations with flaggers, traffic will be controlled in an alternating traffic pattern.

Overall work includes concrete repair, paving, installation of overhead signage, drainage improvements, concrete curbing, guide rail updates and pavement markings. All work is weather and schedule dependent.

New Enterprise Stone & Lime Company Inc. is the contractor on this $6.3 million project. Work is expected to finish in early September.

Motorists should allow for additional commute time. Drivers are advised to watch for slow-moving and stopped vehicles through the entire work zone. Traffic congestion may be heavy at times and motorists should use caution and remain patient.

This project overlaps with PennDOT’s other Route 255 project that stretches from the Tractor Supply intersection to Route 120/State Street in St Marys.
