Act 89 behind Route 6 Improvements in Kane, other Routes in McKean and Potter Counties

Milling in Kane scheduled tomorrow and Saturday

Clearfield – Roadway improvements on Route 6 in Kane as well as other routes in McKean and Potter counties will begin soon because of resources made available by Act 89, the state’s new transportation plan. Repairs will improve the ride quality of the roadway surface and extend the useful life of the pavement.

Milling on Route 6 (Fraley Street) in Kane will begin tomorrow and continue through Saturday. On Friday, crews will be milling at the west end of the borough from Field Street to the Tops Market. On Saturday, crews will mill at the east end of the borough from the Routes 6 and 66 intersection to Lincoln Street. With work dependent on weather, crews may also be milling on Monday, Sept. 29. During this daylight work, drivers will encounter alternating traffic patterns and flaggers in the roadway. Travel delays should be expected.

Paving in Kane Borough will take place in the next week or two and PennDOT will issue an updated release prior to that work.

Other roadway improvements under this contract include 8.5 miles of Route 44 in Potter County between Coudersport and Coneville and 4.3 miles on Route 59 in McKean County west toward Marshburg. Route 6 paving in Kane is expected to finish this year with the other roadway work slated for 2015. Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $4.4 million project. All work is weather and schedule dependent.

Governor Tom Corbett worked with the Legislature to secure passage of Act 89, which is making more than $2.1 billion available in 2014 for highway and bridge projects across the state.

Funding provided by Act 89 is enabling PennDOT to make significant progress in addressing major roadway and bridge needs across the region, including projects starting this year to resurface 175 miles of rough pavement and rehabilitate 24 deteriorated bridges in District 2’s nine-county area of Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Juniata, McKean, Mifflin and Potter counties.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 700 traffic cameras. 511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
