|Indiana, Pa. - PennDOT Engineering District 10 is advising motorists that T-712 (Harry Boring Road) will be closed due to further construction of the State Route (SR) 22 Clyde construction project in West Wheatfield Township, Indiana County. This section of roadway is closed in order to construct a section of new roadway and jug handles for the new SR 22. |
The closure will begin on Monday, August 10, 2009, with an anticipated completion date of mid-September, 2009. There will be a detour in place during the road closure time frame. Motorists are asked to follow T-712 (Harry Boring Road) to T-714 (Horse Thief Road) to T-716 (Bethel Cemetery Road) to SR 22.
Motorists are advised to anticipate minor delays and be prepared to stop. They are also asked to slow down and exercise caution when traveling through work zones. As the need applies, flag crews will direct traffic while work is being performed.
The Clyde Project will provide four lanes (two in each direction) and a median with a barrier in the center on a 4.8-mile section of Route 22 from the intersection of Jessie Penrose Road (T-704) in West Wheatfield Township to the intersection of State Route 2024 (Philadelphia Street) in East Wheatfield Township. The prime contractor for the project is New Enterprise Stone and Lime Company, Inc., of New Enterprise, and the project is estimated to cost $40.8 million.
