Preliminary Work on Route 322 Restoration Project Begins Monday

Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is alerting motorists that preliminary work on a Route 322 restoration project in Boggs Township, Clearfield County, is slated to begin Monday, August 3. This project will improve ride quality and replace an aging drainage system.

Beginning Monday, August 3, the contractor will begin placing traffic control signage and surveying the work zone. The work zone begins approximately one mile before the West Decatur intersection and continues for approximately one mile after. The surveying work is not expected to impact traffic.

The contractor is scheduled to begin roadway restoration work on Monday, August 10. One lane will remain open in each direction while work is taking place. To minimize traffic impacts and back-ups, motorists will be prohibited from turning onto Route 2007 (Blue Ball Road) and Township Road 679 (Hilltop Road) at the West Decatur intersection for the duration of the project. PennDOT anticipates completing project work by mid-October.

Drivers seeking to use Blue Ball Road or Hilltop Road, will use separate detours as noted below:
