DUBOIS — Work to improve the Route 119/322 "Blinker Parkway" intersection in Sandy Township is continuing with an update. When work completes late this year, area drivers will be able to travel through a wider intersection with improved visibility and enhanced safety.
For the time being, drivers can expect:
• Roadway widening, excavation and drainage work to continue;
• Temporary signals are operational and old signals have been removed;
• Utility relocation work will continue.
No traffic pattern changes are in place at this time, although short delays are possible. PennDOT reminds drivers to be cautious, watch for slow-moving vehicles through the work zone, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.
Overall work will include construction of turning lanes, roadway widening, slight roadway re-alignment, drainage improvements, new curbing and sidewalk, curb ramps and traffic signal upgrades.
All work is weather and schedule dependent. Work is scheduled to end by early December of this year. H.R.I. Inc. of State College is the contractor of this $1.3 million project.
