PennDOT to work on Route 45

PennDOT will be working on a section state Route 45 in Centre County starting Thursday.

According to press officer Marla Fannin, the work zone will stretch from Aaronsburg to Woodward, with an alternating traffic pattern controlled by flaggers in the roadway. Drivers should expect short travel delays. Work will take place during daylight hours.

The project is part of a $5.1 million contract that began in 2012 to improve the road surface of 10 routes in Centre and Clinton counties. Work is expected to last into late May.

PennDOT said wet weather could delay the start of the project. Drivers are reminded to be cautious in all work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 680 traffic cameras. 511PA is also available by calling 5-1-1, and regional Twitter alerts are available on the 511PA website.
