Route 6 Improvement Work has resumed in McKean County

Smethport, PA – Improvement work on Route 6 in McKean County that began in 2014 resumed this week for 2015. Motorists could encounter alternating traffic patterns enforced by flaggers during daylight hours in three different work zones: Hazelhurst to Smethport, East Smethport to Port Allegany, and Port Allegany to the Potter County line.

The goal of the work is to improve the roadway surface and ride quality and extend the useful life of the pavement. This work was made possible by Act 89.

Overall work will include base repairs, shoulder improvements, tree trimming, drainage improvements, guide rail updates, bridge deck repairs and paving. The tree trimming work will allow sunlight to reach larger portions of the highway for longer periods of time, providing an additional safety factor in the winter months.

Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $7.5 million project. Work will continue through mid-July. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
