Route 255 Work to Re-Start Monday

St. Marys – Work to improve Route 255, south of Saint Marys will re-start on Monday, April 1.

The work zone for the 2013 construction season stretches from north of Greenbriar Drive (Township Road 593) to just south of the Route 948 intersection in Fox Township. When the project completes in late summer of this year, travel along this section of Route 255 will be smoother and more efficient.

Activity the week of April 1 will include:

• Lane closures of the northbound and southbound passing (left) lanes. These lanes will be closed 24 hours a day/7 days a week until work is complete. The northbound and southbound travel lanes will remain open to through traffic.

• Layout/saw cutting and concrete patching.

Overall work includes concrete repair, paving, installation of overhead signage, drainage improvements, concrete curbing, guide rail updates and pavement markings. All work is weather and schedule dependent. New Enterprise Stone & Lime Company Inc. is the contractor on this $6.3 million project. PennDOT will issue regular updates on this project.

Motorists should allow for additional commute time. Drivers are advised to watch for slow-moving and stopped vehicles through the entire work zone. Traffic congestion may be heavy at times and motorists should use caution and remain patient.

This project overlaps with PennDOT’s other Route 255 project that stretches from the Tractor Supply intersection to Route 120/State Street in St Marys.
