Route 286 Oakland Avenue Traffic Pattern Changes Next Week in Indiana


PennDOT District 10 is announcing a traffic pattern change on Oakland Avenue (Route 286) in White Township, Indiana County will occur Monday through Friday, April 12-16 weather permitting. 

A single-lane closure will then occur on Oakland Avenue between Rustic Lodge Road and State Route 422.  The new traffic pattern will remain in place throughout the summer months. 

Crews from Gulisek Construction, LLC will conduct the operations. 

The work is part of the $19.83 million Route 286/U.S. 422 widening and resurfacing project which includes the widening of Route 286 and the U.S. 422 interchange, replacement of the bridge over McCarthy Run Creek, and the installation of sidewalks along Route 286. Other work includes drainage and guide rail upgrades and traffic signal replacements. 

Additional information will be provided prior to the next phase of work.

Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, and relevant training.
