Route 155 Project to Resume near Port Allegany On Monday

Route 155 Project to Resume near Port Allegany On Monday

Port Allegany, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will resume its Route 155 project in the Port Allegany area on Monday, March 21. The 8-mile project stretches from the Route 155 bridge at the southern end of Port Allegany to the Cameron County line. The improvements will provide motorists with a smoother road surface and also keep a Route 155 bridge in Port Allegany in service for years to come.

Initial work this spring will address drainage upgrades, with replacement of the bridge’s superstructure set to start in April. The bridge work will be done under a half-width restriction which will require an alternating traffic pattern across the bridge. The single-lane pattern will be enforced by temporary traffic signals. The temporary traffic signals will be installed April 4 and will be on flash mode for a week. The signals will be fully operational on April 11, when the alternating pattern begins.

Once work starts on the bridge and the temporary signals control traffic flow, drivers will encounter travel delays. The bridge carries and average of more than 1,300 vehicles each day.

IA Construction Corporation of Franklin, PA is the contractor on this $8 million job, which is expected to last until late September. Overall work on this project will include drainage improvements, paving, guide rail updates, and the superstructure replacement.

PennDOT reminds drivers to use caution in and around all work zones, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.

Thankfully they're putting in the traffic lights and allowing half-width access. Can you imagine the pain in the ass if they completely shut down the roads for these bridge replacements?
