Route 255 Improvements Continue in Saint Marys PennDOT issues update for week of Sept. 7

Saint Marys – Work to improve a section of Route 255 in the city of Saint Marys is continuing as summer comes to an end. 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.

• The contractor will begin work on Sunday night at 7 p.m. and continue through Friday afternoon. Work will be performed 24 hours per day.

• On Monday during daytime work hours, the contractor will be installing guide rail along the east side of Route 255 between Pistner Road and Iron Run Road.

• On Monday during daytime work hours, the contractor will be installing concrete curb along the east side of Route 255 between Arch Street and State Street.

• During daytime work hours, the contractor will be working on the new traffic signals between Vine Street and State Street.

• On Wednesday and Thursday during daytime work hours, the contractor will be paving the new northbound lanes between Arch Street and State Street.

• East Arch 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 East Arch Street will remain closed until further notice.

• 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.

• During nighttime work hours, the contractor will continue grading the northbound lanes of Route 255.

• During daytime work hours, the contractor will be grading, forming and placing concrete steps, driveways, and sidewalks at various locations along Route 255 between Vine Street and State Street.

• During daytime work hours, the contractor will be placing topsoil and seeding various locations throughout the project.

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. Dave Gutelius Excavating Inc. of Mifflinburg is the contractor on this $12.8 million project.
