|Avoid the area if possible|
Indiana - PennDOT Engineering District 10 is advising motorists that utility work will be increasing for the Rose Street #2 North Intersection Project beginning on Monday, September 28, 2009.
With utility work increasing, motorists are advised to use extreme caution, allow extra time, keep alert for changing work zone set-ups and avoid the area if possible.
The project, designed to improve safety, will realign the intersections of State Route (SR) 4032 (Philadelphia Street), (SR) 4003 (College Lodge Road) and Acorn Street located in both Indiana Borough and White Township, Indiana County. The project also includes turning lanes, relocation of the existing road and curbing, sidewalks and drainage updates.
For the 2009 construction season, work will mainly consist of utility relocations (gas, water, electric and sewage), demolition of seven homes and the removal of a large stone wall. The remaining work will be completed during the 2010 construction season.
The main contractor for the project is Quaker Sales Corporation of Johnstown, PA, who had a low bid of $2,484,374.25.
