Route 68 work set to resume in Clarion County

From staff reports

PennDOT says roadway rehabilitation work will resume Wednesday on Route 68 in Monroe and Clarion townships.

Weather permitting, work is planned from the intersection of Route 68 with Interstate 80 (Exit 62) to the intersection of Route 68 with Dolby Street. This project is located within the roadway that includes access to the Clarion Mall, Clarion Hospital and the local Walmart.

This work is a part of Phase 3 of the Dolby Street Intersection Project. Work is to include safety and intersection improvements, including additional traffic and turning lanes, signal replacements, drainage upgrades, and other miscellaneous construction.

The work has been contracted to Plum Contracting of Greensburg. The cost of this project is $11.8 million.

Throughout the duration of this project, drivers should expect extended delays while passing through the work zone. Traffic control will be in place through the form of lane restrictions and temporary flaggers.

The project will run through November.
