Roadwork Has Started on Route 3005 (Hutchins Drive) in McKean County
Mt Jewett – Paving work on Route 3005 (Hutchins Drive) in the Hutchins area of McKean County has started. The work zone stretches for about one mile in Sergeant Township, south of the McKean County Landfill.
Through Oct. 25, crews will perform full depth reclamation work, with the addition of a cement stabilization agent. Flaggers will be in the roadway to direct an alternating traffic pattern. Motorists need to remain alert for flaggers, sudden stops, and short travel delays. When work is complete, this section of Route 3005 will re-open to two-way traffic. Dependent on work progress, two-lane traffic may return to the roadway before Oct. 25.
Once the roadway treatment cures, a three inch asphalt overlay will be placed. That paving will take place as soon as possible, weather permitting.
All work is weather and schedule dependent. Allan A. Myers, a company of American Infrastructure, is the contractor for this $500,000 roadway improvement, which is being funded by Shell Exploration & Production Co, Seneca Resources, and Casella Waste Management of Pennsylvania, Inc.
PennDOT reminds drivers to obey posted speed limits and use caution through all work zones
