The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to view a display of plans for a roadway improvement project along Route 173 (Liberty Street) in the Borough of Grove City, Mercer County.

Plans for the project will be on display:

Time:             8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Location:      Grove City Municipal Building
          123 West Main Street

Work include widening the street approximately 2.5 feet on each side, pavement restoration, curb, sidewalk, and ADA curb ramp improvements, and drainage and signing upgrades. Construction is expected to take place in the summer of 2021.

Plans cann for lane restrictions with traffic controlled by flaggers.

The plans display is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the project’s potential effect upon Cultural Resources pursuant to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation’s 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
