Road Repairs Likely to Cause Traffic Delays on North Atherton Street

by on October 18, 2014 1:45 PM

One of State College's busiest streets will be tied-up for the next several weeks, with a major construction project getting underway on Monday.

PennDot says work crews will be upgrading drainage systems as well as improving the road surface on North Atherton Street, in the area between Park Avenue and West College Avenue.

And that means drivers can expect to see lane closures, and slow traffic, along with flaggers, during work hours -- which will pretty much extend around the clock.

It all adds up to likely delays on the heavily-traveled road.

According to PennDot, work between Park Avenue and Curtin Road will happen during daylight hours -- from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Work between Curtin Road and College will take place overnight from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

The first phase of the $4.4 million project will continue through Nov. 23 when it will shut down for the winter.

Construction will resume sometime after April 1, 2015 with the project slated for completion by the end of next September.

Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor.
