Route 144 Detour to End Tomorrow as Potter County Improvement Work Winds Down

Route 144 Detour to End Tomorrow as Potter County Improvement Work Winds Down

Clearfield – A $4.2 million project to rehabilitate sections of Routes 44 and 144 in Potter County is winding down, with a detour for Route 144 set to end tomorrow afternoon. The project is funded through Act 89, the state’s new transportation plan.

PennDOT’s official detour directed drivers to use Route 6 and Route 44, while full depth reclamation and resurfacing took place on a section of Route 144 from Carter Camp to north of Germania. PennDOT expects the roadway to be fully open on Saturday.

Overall project work began in late June 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.

Crews will continue with drainage work through November, dependent on weather. Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this project. PennDOT thanks area motorists for their patience during this closure and detour.

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.
