PennDOT: 2 highway projects coming up in Clarion Co.

From staff reports

PennDOT on Monday announced details about two upcoming projects in Clarion County.

One project calls for rolling road blocks to occur on Interstate 80 this week as part of the Kahle Bridge replacement project in Richland Township.

Motorists can expect stoppages on I-80 eastbound at mile marker 47 for beam setting operations starting at 10 p.m. tonight through 6 a.m. Wednesday. The same stoppages will occur on I-80 westbound from 10 p.m. Wednesday through 6 a.m. Thursday.

An additional night may be needed Thursday to complete this work.

This $3.38 million bridge replacement project is being handled by Francis J. Palo Inc., and is expected to be completed in November.

Stone House Bridge replacement

The second project calls for Stoney Lonesome Road (Route 1009) to close next week as part of the Stone House Bridge replacement project in Clarion Township.

The road will close for one full day beginning at midnight Sunday between Siverling Road and Route 1007, Greenville Pike. It is expected to reopen at midnight Monday.

The work is weather dependent, and may be rescheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 7.

The bridge carrying Route 1007 over a tributary to Bush Run is being replaced with a box culvert. Other work will include paving, drainage, guiderail upgrades and other miscellaneous construction.

Motorists should expect congestion and delays on Route 1007 between Interstate 80 and Route 322 in heavy traffic volume periods. Slow down and be prepared to stop. Traffic on Route 1009, Stoney Lonesome Road, will also be impacted.

This nearly $1.4 million bridge replacement project is also being handled by Francis J. Palo Inc., and is expected to be completed the end of August.
