PennDot Begins Work On Route 62

WARREN, Pa. — Work has started on a multi-million dollar project that will re-pave Warren County’s busiest roadway.

The $6 million project will result in over five fresh miles of Route 62 starting in the City of Warren, through Conewango Township and into Pine Grove Township.

“The project will improve 5.54 miles of Route 62 from the intersection of Market Street and Pennsylvania Avenue in the City of Warren to the intersection with South Main Street (Route 1015) in Pine Grove Township,” PennDOT said in a Thursday statement.

PennDOT said that “no detours are anticipated, but motorists will encounter traffic lane restrictions controlled by flaggers.”

The project will “also include roadway milling and paving, along with upgrades to traffic signals, ADA curb ramps, and pavement markings.”

The bridge over Rhine Run near Conewango Valley Country Club will receive a concrete overlay as part of the project, as well.

Work started on Tuesday and PennDOT said IA Construction Corporation of Franklin was awarded the contract for the job.

Total cost is $5,929,777.77 and will be paid for utilizing federal dollars.

“Paving and bridge work is expected to be completed by Oct. 18, 2019,” PennDOT said. “The anticipated completion date for traffic signal upgrades is Feb. 28, 2020.”
