Work includes debris removal, deposition removal, stream bank repair, and rock protection on various bridge structures. Motorists should be alert, slow down, and expect travel delays.
Only two roads, Route 4009, and Route 4007 will be fully closed. They will be blocked off for approximately two weeks. The rest of the sights are typical construction projects that should only take a couple of days to complete. The smaller projects will not be closed fully but will include a flagger on each end directing one-lane traffic.
“Every couple years we seem to have one of these heavy heavy rainstorms and we get damage so, I’ve managed construction contracts for a long time and we’ve done a number of these types of projects,” said Jay Miller, Assistant Construction Engineer, PennDot District 3.
