Short Term Projects:
SR 1012, Intersection of Kennedy Drive and County Road; Archbald Borough; Intersection improvements Project
The project will consist of the realignment of Kennedy Drive at Main Street to form a four-way intersection with the opposite Borough street. A new traffic signal will be installed at this intersection. Also, Kennedy Drive will be widened to accommodate a center turn lane from Main Street to Monica Drive. An additional left turn lane may be added on Main for left turns onto Kennedy Drive. Other work included with the project are drainage improvements, utility relocation for the signal, and driveway access control through the installation of concrete curbing. The project completion date is Dec 2017.
Long Term Projects:
SR 6/11(Lackawanna Trail) – Clarks Summit to Clinton – Single Lane in both directions, traffic will travel on the southbound side while crews reconstruct the northbound lanes. Estimated Completion – November 2017. On Tuesday, November 15 traffic will be switched to normal traffic patterns – two lanes eastbound and two lanes westbound. It’ll remain this way until the spring. Some work in the median near Factoryville will take place as long as the weather allows. In the spring, crews will be working near Dalton, westbound, and all traffic will be single lane in the eastbound lanes, single lane. After that is done, final pave will take place at night.
