Work on Freedom Road postponed to this weekend
The westbound lane of Freedom Road will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, until 6 a.m. Monday, Sept. 26, between Haine School Road and Commonwealth Drive for paving, drainage and signal work.
The work was previously scheduled by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to take place for Sept.16 to 19.
The contractor, Gulisek Construction, of Mount Pleasant, will be maintaining eastbound traffic with signs and flagging as needed. For the westbound detour, traffic will use State Route 3020 East, to U.S. 19 North, to Rochester Road to Powell Road, to Freedom Road.
This project is an extension of Freedom Road project which included new highway and turning lanes, widening, paving, drainage, signal upgrade and replacement, lighting work, highway realignment, safety improvements and sidewalks.
The $9.8 million project as a whole is estimated to be completed in the fall, according to a news release from PennDOT.
