PennDOT Paving Project in the City of Meadville and West Mead Township to Start May 11, 2020
A $1.5 million resurfacing project that will give motorists a smoother ride on more than two miles of Route 2035 (Liberty Street/Popular Street/Williamson Road) in the City of Meadville and West Mead Township, Crawford County is scheduled to start May 11, 2020, weather permitting and is expected to be completed in June 2020.
The project will include paving of 2.2 miles of roadway from the intersection with Route 27 in the City of Meadville to near the intersection with Homecroft Road in West Mead Township. Work will also include milling, tree trimming, and updated drainage, signs, and pavement markings.
No detours are expected. Motorists may encounter lane restrictions with traffic controlled by flaggers. Drivers should be alert for traffic pattern shifts and anticipate travel delays during active work hours.
The contractor is Lindy Paving, Inc. of New Galilee, PA. The contract cost is $1,533,108.80, which is to be paid entirely with state funds.
Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, and relevant training.
PennDOT urges motorists to slow down when driving in work zones, and also to be alert to changing conditions, avoid distractions and to pay attention to signs and flaggers. Drive responsibly in work zones for your safety and the safety of the workers.
