|Compressed, Split Schedule Will Eliminate Closures During Most of the Winter Months|
Dunmore-The work that was originally scheduled to begin on Monday, October 7 is being delayed until Monday, October 28, with a compressed scheduled to help alleviate the concern of vehicles traveling on SR 3004 (John Sheehan Road) in the winter months.
On Monday, October 28, the contractor will close SR 3003 (Sugar Hollow Road) and implement a detour for 1-2 months in order to complete stream excavation and construction of a retaining wall. After the work is complete, they have agreed to reconstruct the current road and reopen SR 3003 (Sugar Hollow Road) for the winter. In the spring, the road will be closed again and the detour implemented until the summer. The 6.6 mile detour will be posted from SR 87 to SR 3004 (John Sheehan Road). This is part of a $3.3 million project to replace the bridge over Mehoopany Creek. The anticipated completion date for the entire project is August 2014.
