PUNXSUTAWNEY — Now that the festival season has concluded in Punxsutawney for another year, it’s time for borough residents and motorists to prepare for the return of construction season.

Police Chief Tom Fedigan said at Monday’s Punxsutawney Borough Council meeting that motorists should prepare themselves for significant delays beginning today.

Contractor Power Contracting will shut down the intersection of Jefferson Street and Mahoning Street today, Fedigan said, and there will be delays in the downtown area, along with parking restrictions and tagged meters.
