PennDOT says a project to relocate utility lines could lead to traffic stoppages of up to 15 minutes at a time this Thursday and Friday (May 9 and 10) at the bottom of Seneca Hill at the intersection of Routes 62 and 257.
The work is being done in connection with the realignment and improvement project at the intersection. Earlier delays have, for the most part, been less lengthy than those expected Thursday and Friday.
Traffic will be maintained by flaggers, but PennDOT says motorists may want to plan to take alternate routes. The work is weather-dependent, and will be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather.
Work on the $2.8 million PennDOT project should continue through late November. In August, Route 62 north of the intersection will be closed for about six weeks for the replacement of a 29-foot bridge over Sage Run.
