PennDOT Issues Update for McKean County Route 6 Project



Smethport, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is issuing an update for its Route 6 improvement job in McKean County. The week of July 13 could bring travel delays as crews work in a variety of construction zones. Dependent on weather, drivers can expect to encounter the following activities next week:

• Placement of wearing course between Smethport and Port Allegany
• Guide rail installation and placement of shoulder material between Smethport and Port Allegany
• Placement of binder course over previously milled roadway surface in Hazelhurst

Multiple work zones will be in place between Smethport and Port Allegany. All work zones will feature flaggers in the roadway enforcing an alternating traffic pattern. Drivers should expect travel delays. All work is weather dependent.

Overall work on this project will include base repairs, shoulder improvements, tree trimming, drainage improvements, guide rail updates, bridge deck repairs and paving. 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.

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.
