Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is alerting area drivers to upcoming railroad work in the Clearfield area. Starting Monday, June 18, crews from the RJ Corman Railroad will be working at two different crossings—one on Nichols Street in Clearfield Borough and the other on Riverview Road/Coal Hill Road in Lawrence Township.
Crews will upgrade the existing flashing lights and circuitry. At the end of the project, both railroad crossings will have automatic flashing lights. Work is expected to last approximately two weeks.
This work has been approved by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission and made possible through Federal Safety Funds.
As work takes place at each location, drivers may encounter alternating, single-lane traffic patterns. Additionally, flaggers may be present in the roadway to control traffic. PennDOT reminds drivers to approach the railroad crossing and work area with caution and to “Always expect a train.”
