Improvement Work Underway on Route 146 and Route 46

Section of Route 46 to Close on Monday

Port Allegheny, PA – A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) roadway improvement project got underway in late August on Route 46 in McKean County, with work also taking place on Route 146 today through Saturday.

Tomorrow, work will feature drainage repairs on Route 46 near the intersection of Routes 46 and 146. This work zone will be controlled by automated flagging equipment. Through Saturday, base repair work is taking place on Route 146 from the Clermont area, south for about five miles. Traffic through this work zone will be controlled by roadway flaggers.

Starting Monday, Sept. 12, Route 46 will be closed from the McKean/Cameron county line to the Route 6 intersection near Smethport, as full depth reclamation work begins. 

The project will result in five miles of new roadway and an additional 15 miles of improved roadway surface.

Once this section of Route 46 is closed, a detour will be in place. PennDOT’s official detour will make use of Route 6, Route 120, and Route 155. The detour is expected to last through October and includes a Route 6 bridge about 2 ½ miles west of Port Allegany that opened on Aug. 23. Residents living along this section of Route 46 will be able to access their homes.

IA Construction Inc. is the contractor on this $3.13 million project that is expected to finish in late November.

PennDOT reminds motorists to follow detour signage, use cautious in work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

There is a bridge out on 46 already - they've got the remote signals up. Nobody ever shows up to work there. In the last 3 weeks they've been there maybe 5-6 days... What a mess this will be.... Too bad the 3.13 million wasn't spent on people actually wanting to work...
