Retaining wall project along Little Pine Creek Road hits delays

The state Department of Transportation says a retaining wall project along Little Pine Creek Road in Cummings Township has encountered delays.

The retaining wall project began in April of 2021 and is located in two locations along Pine Creek Road. The first location, less than a mile north of the intersection of Route 44 and Little Pine Creek Road, has encountered unforeseeable delays due to subsurface rock quality conditions, a news release from PennDOT said. This will delay the completion of the project at this site until September of 2022. Motorists can expect a single 17-foot-wide lane using a stop sign at each end during the winter months at this location.

The second location, a little more than 2 miles north of Route 44 and Little Pine Creek Road, will be open to two lanes of traffic during the upcoming winter months.

In the Spring of 2022, the contractor will complete the associated roadway work for this area.

LTT Trucking LLC, is the primary contractor for the $1.7 million, project, according to the news release. Work includes the construction of two retaining walls, new asphalt pavement, line painting and guiderails.

Motorists should be alert, slow down, expect delays in travel, watch for slow or stopped vehicles and drive with caution through the work zone.
