Paving on Route 550 in Bellefonte starts today

BELLEFONTE — The project to improve more than 22 miles of roadway surface in Centre and Clinton counties is expected to wrap up by the middle of next week, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportion.

In Centre County, paving on Route 550 from Allegheny Street to the Bellefonte High School is scheduled to begin today and continue Monday and Tuesday.

Traffic control will be provided by flaggers in the roadway enforcing an alternating traffic pattern. Motorists should expect short travel delays. PennDOT reminds drivers to use caution when driving through the construction zone.
