MID-MAY UPDATE ON ROAD IMPROVEMENT WORK IN JUNIATA AND MIFFLIN COUNTIES

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will continue work next week to improve more than 25 miles of roadway in Mifflin and Juniata counties. Overall work under this contract will improve roadway ride quality and extend the life of the roadway surface.

The week of May 22 will feature work at the following sites:

  • Paving on Route 333 in Mifflin County from the Snyder/Mifflin county line to the intersection with Route 103
  • Continuation of joint and base repair on Main Street (Route 3002) in Juniata County from the village of Mexico to Pfoutz Valley Road and east of Thompsontown. This work will not take place in Thompsontown.
  • Monday, May 22, paving will take place on Route 333 near the Borough of Mifflin from Main Street to Valley Street. This work will impact street parking and “No Parking” signs will be in place where necessary.

A daylight alternating traffic pattern will be in controlled by flaggers in the roadway. Short travel delays should be expected and drivers should be alert for slow moving and stopped vehicles through the work zone. All work is weather and schedule dependent.

Overall work covers Routes 333 and 3002 (Main Street in the Thompsontown area) in Juniata County and Routes 1005 (Main Street in the Lewistown area), Route 333, and 2005 (Mill Road/Parcheytown Road) in Mifflin County. Contract work includes milling, base and joint repair, resurfacing, and ADA curb ramps.

Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. is the contractor on this $4.0 million project, which is expected to finish by late August. PennDOT reminds drivers to be cautious in work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
