Clearfield, PA - The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) alerted drivers heading to Beaver Stadium from the Harrisburg area this weekend to the potential for delays at the site of a bridge preservation project along Route 22 in Walker Township, Juniata County. The bridges spanning Route 2003 (Doe Run Road) about a mile before the Port Royal exit are restricted to a single lane in each direction and have contributed to significant traffic cues on Penn State home football weekends.
PennDOT's Regional Traffic Management Centers plan to display travel times to Beaver Stadium on their changeable message signs along Route 22/322 so drivers can decide whether to consider alternate routes.
This project will see improvements to six bridges in Fermanagh and Walker townships that will improve the ride quality and extend the life of the structures. Work on the remaining bridges is expected to wrap during the 2024 construction season.
Motorists are encouraged to "Know Before They Go" by checking conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
