06/10/2021

Montoursville, PA – A district-wide guiderail repair project is set to begin next week in Lycoming, Sullivan, Tioga, and Bradford Counties.

On Tuesday, June 15, the contractor Penn Line Services, Inc., will begin performing guiderail repairs, installation, and other miscellaneous construction along several routes in various municipalities throughout these counties.

Motorists should expect single-lane closures in each direction on two-lane roadways and full lane closures on four-lane roadways. Motorists should be alert, slow down, watch for slow or stopped vehicles, watch for lane changes, and drive with caution through the work zone.

Penn Line Service, Inc., is the primary contractor for this $1,200,000 guiderail replacement project. The project is expected to be completed by the end of June 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.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
