Update for Route 220/Auction Road Project, Week of August 17 Setting of Bridge Beams will Bring Traffic Delays

Lock Haven, PA – Phase Two of Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Route 220/Auction Road project in Lamar Township is continuing with the goal to provide smoother, more efficient travel through the area and provide increased sight distance. Setting of bridge beams is now scheduled to take place Monday and Tuesday, August 17 and 18. PennDOT issues the following project update for the week of August 17.
• The contractor will continue construction of the single span bridge for Route 220 that will span Route 2008 (Fairground Road). Beams are scheduled to be set on Monday and Tuesday, August 17 and 18. Drivers will experience significant delays on Route 2008 between Route 220 and the fairground entrance while the beams are being set.

• Beam transport could cause minor delays. Traffic flow on Route 26/220/I-99 east of Bellefonte could be slowed as beams pass from I-99 northbound to I-80 eastbound at the 161/Bellefonte interchange.

• The contractor will continue work on permanent storm water management ponds and will continue with roadway grading in preparation for subbase throughout the project.

• A 14-foot width restriction on Route 220 northbound and southbound remains in effect until late 2015.

• Motorists are advised to watch for slow moving and stopped vehicles through the entire work zone and reminded to use caution when traveling through work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

• All work is weather dependent.

Phase Two features the construction of the bridge and ramps on the western side of Route 220, adjacent to the Clinton County Fairgrounds. Overall work includes excavation, concrete piping, paving, sign structures, inlets, light poles, guide rail, and miscellaneous items. The contractor for the $12.4 million Phase Two project is HRI, Inc. of State College.
