A nearly $2.6 million project that will resurface 7 miles of roads in Muncy Township, Lycoming County, soon will be underway, thanks to the state's new transportation funding plan, Act 89.
On Monday, contractor HRI Inc. will begin paving Route 2014 (Lycoming Mall Drive) from Lycoming Mall Road to Route 2036, Route 2036 from Lycoming Mall Drive to Route 220 at the Route 180 underpass, and Route 220 to the intersection of Route 405 in the Borough of Hughesville.
Other work includes drainage improvements, guiderail upgrades, base repairs and minor structure repairs including an epoxy overlay of the roadway near the Lycoming Mall entrance.
The work will be performed using single-lane closures in each direction. Paving on Route 2014 and Route 2036 will be done at night to minimize impacts to daily traffic. Drivers need to remain alert and slow down in work zones.
The work is scheduled to be completed by early December.
Act 89, the legislation made possible by the bipartisan consensus reached by Gov. Tom Corbett and the Legislature, will enable the state Department of Transportation to invest an additional $36.6 million to pave an additional 42 miles of roadway, preserve 34 miles of pavement and replace or rehabilitate an additional five bridges, four of which are structurally deficient, this year in its nine-county District 3 area of Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga and Union counties.
Bridge work begins on Pleasant Valley Road in Lycoming County
Motorists are advised that Route 2022 (Pleasant Valley Road) is closed about a mile north of the village of Warrensville in Lycoming County for a $94,000 bridge replacement project.
The existing 20 foot-long bridge, which was built in 1932 and is classified as structurally deficient, carries Pleasant Valley Road over Calebs Run. A department bridge crew will replace the bridge with a precast concrete box culvert.
A detour is in place using Route 973 and Northway Road.
The project is expected to be completed in mid-August.
