Whitehall Road Constructing Waning for Winter, PennDOT Says

by on November 27, 2012 1:56 PM

PennDOT announced construction on Route 3018 (Whitehall Road/University Drive) in State College is coming to a close for the winter. Work to improve safety and ease traffic congestion will start again, weather-permitting, in the Spring. 

Once PennDOT's work is finished in the fall of 2013, travel along Route 3018 will be smoother, less congested and more efficient.

Through the end of the year, drivers can expect:

  • Crews will finish the installation of flashing, warning devices for the Friends School and Centre Lifelink.
  • Crews will finish the installation of delineators from West Whitehall Road to Atherton Street.
  • The long-term traffic control pattern that is currently in place from West College Avenue to Waupelani Drive will remain through the winter.

PennDOT reminds motorists to use caution when driving near bicyclists, and to share the road and remain alert for bicyclists entering and using the highway. Drivers also need to be alert for pedestrians crossing the roadway.

Overall work includes roadway-widening, addition of a center left turn lane, addition of marked bicycle lanes, new traffic signals, drainage improvements, water line relocation and roadway paving. All work is weather and schedule dependent. HRI Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $10.3 million project.
