Preliminary Work Underway on Route 6 Project in Potter County


From the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation

Preliminary work got underway this week for a Route 6 project in Potter County, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT). Through April, crews will perform guide rail removal and shoulder stabilization through the work zone which stretches from Port Allegany (McKean County line) to Coudersport.

Roadwork across this section of Route 6 will improve the condition of the roadway and result in smoother, safer travel for area motorists.

During this preliminary work, roadway flaggers will control traffic in an alternating pattern. Drivers should be alert for flaggers and approach the work zone with caution.

Later this spring, roadwork activities will get underway, including roadway resurfacing, pipe replacements, inlets, guide rail improvements, box culvert repairs, outlet protection, pavement markings, and miscellaneous items.

As structure repairs begin, temporary traffic signals will be set to enforce an alternating traffic pattern. PennDOT will issue an update on the project prior to the use of the temporary signals.

PennDOT expects this work to be complete by the end of October. Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College, PA, is the contractor for this $7.6 million job. PennDOT reminds drivers to use caution in work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

Motorists are encouraged to “Know Before They Go” by checking conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 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.
