‘Tis The Season

Maintenance projects along the state roadways in Warren County have been scheduled for the week beginning June 30, according to Wes Hess, Warren County Maintenance manager for PennDOT.

All activities are weather permitting, and this list is subject to change.

A release from Jim Carroll, PennDOT District Press officer states, “PennDOT urges motorists to slow down when driving in work zones, and also to be alert to changing conditions, avoid distractions and pay attention to signs and flaggers. Drive responsibly in work zones for your safety and the safety of the workers.”

On Route 62, and on Tidioute Creek Road, workers will be repairing storm damage from Wednesday’s wild weather, and there will be drainage work done along Route 958 in Freehold Township.

There will be some pipe replacements and ditching on both Yankee Bush Road and Chapman Dam Road that will require some road closures while the work is being done, Carroll said.

There is also a continuing culvert replacement scheduled for Mohawk Avenue in Pleasant Township.

He added that the only current construction project scheduled is waiting for the contractor to begin work on Main Avenue on the city’s south side.

Meanwhile, in the city, workers from Signature Paving and Sealing have begun working on filling large potholes, according to Mike Holtz, Department of Public Works director. Russell Standard won the bid for milling and paving 25 city blocks.
