8-Week Project Starts Next Week on Route 2002 in Galeton Area

Clearfield – Starting next week, Potter County drivers will encounter road crews along Route 2002 in the Galeton area. The 2.2-mile work zone will stretch from West Branch Township toward Galeton. Flaggers will be on the roadway to enforce an alternating traffic pattern and drivers are reminded to proceed with caution in the work zone. The entrance to the lumber mill will remain accessible to all traffic.

Work will begin next week with sign placement, followed by drainage improvements. Other work will include slide repair, roadway grinding and paving, and roadway markings.  During the roadway grinding, a pilot car will be used to guide vehicles through the work zone.

Starting about halfway through the project time-frame, a detour will be in place for eastbound/northbound truck traffic. Trucks headed east or north will be detoured onto Route 44 to Route 6 and back to Route 2002.

Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $1.2 million roadway improvement project. Work is expected to be complete in mid-September.
