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.

Update:   During the week of March 5 a new traffic pattern will be implement for the ongoing reconstruction project. This phase will restrict traffic to a single lane travel heading east and west on SR 6 in two separate areas within the construction limits.

The two areas in which this PennDOT engineered and approved traffic pattern will be placed are as follows:

Area 1: Clarks Summit, east limit of construction (near Valero and Wellington Pub) to the Dalton Bridge (at exit to Dalton, SR 632) – single lane traffic, both sides, east and west bound SR 6.

Area 2: Overbrook Road (just east of Keystone College) to the 6/11 split, west limit of construction – single lane traffic, both sides, east and west bound SR 6

The 2.3 miles of SR 6 between these two areas will continue to remain unrestricted. The estimated duration of this revised traffic pattern  will be March 8th to May 19th, 2017.

SR 347 (O’Neill Highway/Blakely Street) Dunmore Signal Project *UPDATE*:Work is progressing on SR 347 as part of the Dunmore Signal Project. Crews are continuing to pour concrete sidewalks near the Subway entrance. They are also erecting traffic signal foundations at Rite Aid. In about three weeks, crews will be starting work at the Dunmore Corners section. Please be aware of alerts sent out by PennDOT for updates on traffic patterns as traffic will be down to one lane in this area. Crews have already installed new sidewalks along SR 347 and they have removed the median between Keystone Industrial Park and I-81. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by May 2017.

Work will begin the week of January 16 on the bridge located in the 800 block of S. Main St, Taylor over PA turnpike.  Two 11 ft. lanes on both direction will be open during construction.  Bridge work should be completed by November 2017.
