Temporary Traffic Signals on Route 6

Coudersport – A roadway improvement project on Route 6 in Potter County will enter a new phase next week, as temporary traffic signals are turned on mid-week.

The roadway betterment work will extend the useful life of the roadway and bridges and result in a smoother, safer ride for motorists. The four-mile work zone stretches from the Potato City Inn to about one mile east of the Denton Hill Ski area.

Temporary traffic signals are located on the bridge at the Denton Hill Ski area and on the bridge about one mile east of the ski area. The signals will be placed on flash mode Wednesday, May 16. The signals will be activated on Tuesday, May 22, enforcing an alternating traffic pattern so that crews can work in the closed lane of each bridge.

For roadwork, daylight, alternating traffic patterns will be in place and drivers can expect to encounter flaggers on the roadway and short travel delays. Motorists need to be alert for sudden stops.

Project work includes roadway and bridge repairs, roadway resurfacing, drainage improvements, guiderail updates, line painting, and miscellaneous construction. All work is weather dependent. A.L. Blades & Sons, Inc. of Hornell, New York is the contractor on this $4.2 million project. Work will be complete in late November.
