PennDOT's Weeklong Paving Project Begins Thursday on Route 26

A weeklong paving project on Route 26 will kick off Thursday.

PennDOT crews will be working at various locations between the Nittany Mall and Pleasant Gap.

At some locations, flaggers will control an alternating traffic pattern. Other locations will feature lane closures without flaggers.

Drivers need to be alert for slowed traffic and short travel delays. PennDOT expects work to be complete Aug. 3. However, completion could be earlier if the weather and work progress allow.   

Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor for this work, which is part of a $4.9 million contract to address 14 routes in Centre and Clinton counties.

PennDOT reminds motorists to remain alert for bicyclists using the highway. Drivers also are reminded to obey posted speed limits, proceed through work zones with caution, and always buckle up.
