Median Cable Guide Rail Project on I-80 in Columbia and Montour Counties


Montoursville, PA – A PennDOT contractor will work this week on a regional median cable guide rail project on Interstate 80 in Columbia and Montour counties.

The contractor, Morgan Rail Inc., will install high-tension median cable guide rail on I-80 eastbound and westbound from the Danville Interchange in Montour County to the Buckhorn Interchange in Columbia County.

This moving operation will require shoulder closures and intermittent left lane closures at work locations. Work will be performed from approximately 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

Minor delays are expected. Motorists should be alert and drive with caution through the work zone. Motorists should be alert for construction vehicles entering and exiting the roadway.

This work, which is part of $ 1.6 million safety improvement project at multiple locations in north central Pennsylvania, is expected to be completed in September.
