Road work to re-start in Clinton, Centre

STATE COLLEGE — A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) project to bring roadway improvements in Centre, Clinton, Mifflin and Juniata counties has restarted.

In Centre County, work has begun on Beach Street, Yarnell Road, Thomas Road, Main Street, Marsh Creek Road and Sayers Dam Road (Route 1002) in the Yarnell, Richner Hollow, Marsh Creek and Blanchard areas.

This work is expected to take about a month. Crews will then move to Jacob Road, Jacksonville Road and Hubler Ridge Road in the Jacksonville area.

Once Centre County work is complete, crews will move to Clinton County to perform a small amount of work on Hyner Run Road.

Drivers will encounter alternating traffic patterns enforced by flaggers in the roadway. Drivers should anticipate short travel delays and may want to consider alternate routes.

The project started in 2016 with work along Hyner Run Road in Clinton County.

Overall, the project brings improvements to almost 25 miles of roadway surface on secondary roads across the four counties — making use of recycled asphalt pavement.

Other work includes final paving and guide rail updates. Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $5.1 million job, which will run through August.

PennDOT reminds drivers to be cautious in all work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
