Montoursville, PA – Motorists who travel Route 414 in Morris Township, Tioga County are advised the retaining wall project will be suspended and the roadway opened to traffic on Wednesday, July 1 through Sunday, July 5. The project is located at the intersection of Wilson Hill Road and continues north for .58 miles towards Morris.
On Monday, July 6, the roadway will be closed while work resumes. Work is expected to be completed by mid-July 2020.
Utility relocation work is being done in preparation for the construction of six retaining walls. The retaining wall construction will begin in the spring of 2021 due to an area of embankment failures between Babb Creek and Route 414.
During the utility relocation, a detour will be in place using Wilson Hill Road, Route 4002 (Oregon Hill Road), English Run Road and Route 287 in Tioga and Lycoming Counties.
Motorists should be alert and drive with caution in the area.
The contractor is LTT Trucking, LCC. for this $4,900,000, 3-phase project. The project will have a planned detour route for each phase of the work and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2022.
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.
