Saint Marys – Work to improve a section of Route 255 in the city of Saint Marys continues to move toward completion. The project stretches from the Tractor Supply Co. intersection to Route 120/State Street in Saint Marys. Once finished, travel along this section of Route 255 will be smoother and more efficient.

Activity the week of Oct. 13 will include:

• The contractor will begin work on Monday morning at 7 a.m. and continue through Friday afternoon. All work will be performed during daytime hours.

• The contractor will continue driveway restoration.

• The outside travel lanes on Route 255 northbound and southbound between the intersection at Tractor Supply and State Street will be closed during daytime working hours to perform work adjacent to the highway. These lanes will re-open each day at the end of the shift.

• The contractor will be cleaning and sealing newly installed concrete sidewalks and driveways.

• The contractor will be grading, forming and placing concrete sidewalks at various locations along Route 255 between Vine Street and State Street.

• 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.
