Road Work Underway in McKean and Potter Counties

Bradford, PA – A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) road improvement project is underway in McKean and Potter counties. The project will bring improvements across more than 16 miles of road surfaces in the two counties and provide smoother, safer travel for regional motorists.

This week, crews are concentrating their efforts in McKean County, with milling and paving set for today and tomorrow on Route 246 from the Route 6464/246 intersection to the village of Prentiss Vale. Wednesday and Thursday will bring milling and paving activity to Route 219 and Route 6 in the area of Lantz Corners

Each work location will feature a daylight alternating traffic pattern, controlled by flaggers in the roadway. Short travel delays should be expected.

Work includes milling and resurfacing, along with base repair and drainage improvements. All work is weather and schedule dependent.

Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $5 million job, which is expected to finish by the end of September.

PennDOT will issue updates on work locations for this project as progress allows.

Drivers are reminded to use caution in all work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 770 traffic cameras.
