Work to continue on SR 255 near DuBois
Saturday, July 13, 2013
DUBOIS - Work to improve state Route 255 near the Interstate 80 DuBois/101 interchange is continuing. When work completes in mid-October, a smoother roadway surface and new traffic signals at the I-80 ramps will provide area drivers with more efficient travel and improved traffic flow.
Work next week will feature the following activity:
The contractor will remove concrete islands at the end of each of the I-80 ramps. Traffic entering and exiting I-80 on the ramps should use caution through the work zone.
The contractor will be excavating along the southbound shoulder of SR 255 between I-80 and Snappy's convenience store.
Roadway patching may take place between the Treasure Lake entrance to the Narrows Creek bridge.
Motorists should expect to encounter flaggers in the work zone and significant travel delays. Drivers should give themselves extra time to travel through the area. The state Department of Transportation reminds drivers to remain alert and proceed through the work zone with caution. Normal work hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each weekday.
Overall work on SR 255 will include milling and paving, bridge deck repair, cleaning and upgrading of pipe culverts and inlets, water line extension, and installation of new traffic signals at the I-80 ramps.
All work is weather and schedule dependent. Work is scheduled to end by mid-October of this year.
New Enterprise Stone and Lime Inc. is the contractor on this $3.4 million project.
