ROUTE 255 IMPROVEMENTS CONTINUE IN SAINT MARYS

ROUTE 255 IMPROVEMENTS CONTINUE IN SAINT MARYS

Route 255 Improvements Continue in Saint Marys
PennDOT issues update for week of Aug. 11

Saint Marys – Work to improve a section of Route 255 in the city of Saint
Marys is continuing as we move through summer. The project stretches from the
Tractor Supply Co. intersection to Route 120/State Street in Saint Marys. Once the
project completes this fall, travel along this section of Route 255 will be
smoother and more efficient.

Activity the week of Aug. 11 will include:

• The contractor will begin work on Monday at 7 a.m. and continue through
Thursday afternoon. Work will be performed during daytime hours only.

• Route 255 will continue to be restricted to one northbound lane between
Random Road and Mill Street and one southbound lane between Railroad Street
and Random Road. This traffic pattern will remain in place 24-hours per-day
until further notice.

• Vine Street will continue to be closed between Route 255 (South Saint
Marys Street) and Chestnut Street. Motorists are to follow the signed detour
route. This portion of Vine Street will remain closed until further notice.

• The contractor will continue with installation of a retaining wall along
Route 255 near Vine Street.

• During daytime hours, the contractor will be installing storm drainage
along Route 255.

• During daytime hours, the contractor will be working on driveways on the
west side of Route 255.

• The contractor will begin grading for sidewalk along Route 255 near Vine
Street.

• The contractor will continue grading the northbound lanes on Route 255.

• During the daytime hours, the contractor will be removing old signal
poles and installing conduit for new traffic signals.

• The contractor will begin placing topsoil and seeding areas along the
western edge of Route 255.

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 to 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.

improvement to who, certainly not the homeowners who live there.
