Route 144 Detour Starts Tuesday as Potter County Improvements Continue

Route 144 Detour Starts Tuesday as Potter County Improvements Continue

Clearfield – A $4.2 million project to rehabilitate sections of Routes 44 and 144 in Potter County is continuing, with a detour for Route 144 set to begin Tuesday, Sept. 2. The project is funded through Act 89, the state’s new transportation plan.

Full depth reclamation and resurfacing will begin on Tuesday on a section of Route 144 from Carter Camp to north of Germania. This section of Route 144 will be closed and a detour will be in place. 

PennDOT’s official detour will direct drivers to use Route 6 and Route 44. Drivers familiar with the area may choose to use alternate routes. A small section of Route 2001 (Germania Branch Road), just off of Route 144 will also be repaired. Reclamation and overlay work will last until mid-October.

Overall project work began June 25 and has also included pipe improvements on Route 144 from Carter Camp to Germania, pipe replacements on Route 44 from Carter Camp to Sweden Valley, and patching on Route 144 near Oleana.

Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this project. Motorists are reminded to follow detour signs, posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 700 traffic cameras. 511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
