STATE COLLEGE – With 2019 work winding down, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is issuing an early December update for its North Atherton Street (Route 3014) project in State College.
Minor work is now expected to carry through December, with project completion set for spring of 2020. Overall work has included relocation of numerous utility lines, relocation of sewer and water lines, drainage improvements, curbing, sidewalks, ADA ramps, traffic signal upgrades, new concrete median and paving.
The project page for this work can be found at www.penndot.gov/AthertonStreet. Motorists can expect the following Dec. 9 through 13:
- West Aaron Drive to Curtin Road—entire length of project:
- The contractor will be installing signs throughout the week. Traffic control will limit traffic to one lane in each direction while work is taking place.
- In 2020, work will take place between Park Avenue and Curtin Road. That work includes installation of PSU casings for future development, installation of drainage, curb, sidewalk and curb ramps, signal upgrades and paving of the remaining area. Work is expected to take place May through June.
- Park Avenue through Curtin Road:
- The contractor will be performing signal work on Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 11 and 12. Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction while work is being performed. Travel delays are possible.
