PennDOT to Open Osterhout Street
Crews have been working since March to reconstruct and realign Osterhout Street in order to lessen truck traffic congestion in Ridgway Borough and easily access northbound Route 219. Trucks and passenger vehicles will be able to use Osterhout Street
Once Osterhout Street is open, PennDOT will lift the detour on Routes 120 and 219. Overall work has included utility relocation, asbestos removal, major excavation, roadway construction, paving, roadway markings, and miscellaneous items.
The 2013 construction season will address intersection improvements at Route 219 (Broad Street) and Route 948 (Main Street). Those improvements will include curbing, ADA ramps, and signal upgrades, with signal poles similar in style to the current street lights.
All work is weather and schedule dependent. New Enterprise Stone and Lime Co. Inc. is the contractor on this $2.75 million project.
