|PENNDOT ANNOUNCES EXPECTED DELAYS FOR TRAFFIC REALIGNMENT ON ROUTE 22|
Indiana, Pa. - PennDOT Engineering District 10 is advising motorists to expect delays Tuesday, November 14, 2006, as traffic along Route 22 is realigned at the eastern end of the Penn View construction project in Burrell and West Wheatfield townships, Indiana County.
Weather permitting, traffic will be moved from Route 22's original alignment to the route's newly constructed alignment. The new traffic pattern will begin at the project's eastern end and will continue to about the center of the project, where traffic will rejoin Route 22's original alignment. The alignment shift may cause significant delays. Motorists are asked to avoid the area and find an alternate route.
Traffic will be reduced to single-lane alternating use through sections of the work zone. Flag crews will control traffic flow. PennDOT asks that motorists exercise caution and patience and remember that work zone safety is everyone's responsibility.
