Coudersport, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is alerting area motorists that pipe replacement work that was set for this week in Pike Township, Potter County has been delayed by wet weather.
Work will now take place June 26 through 30, with crews from PennDOT Potter County Maintenance working to replace three pipes along Phoenix Run Road (Route 1005). A daylight closure will be in effect from 7 A.M. to 4 P.M. each work day.
PennDOT will accommodate emergency vehicles as necessary. All other drivers should use alternate routes during the day.
The pipe work is being done in preparation for roadway surface improvement work, which is expected to take place during the 2017 construction season. PennDOT will issue an update prior to the resurfacing work.
Drivers are reminded to use caution in and around work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up. PennDOT will lift the daylight closure before June 23 if work progress allows.
