I-80 Paving Project in Venango County to Begin April 5


An $8.8 million resurfacing project that will give motorists a smoother ride on more than six miles of Interstate 80 in Clinton and Irwin Townships is scheduled to start soon.

The project will include paving of 6.4 miles of the eastbound and westbound lane of I-80 from approximately mile marker 27 to mile marker 34 in Clinton and Irwin Townships. Work will also include concrete patching, drainage improvements, signing, pavement markings, and guide rail updates.

Construction is expected to begin April 5, 2021, weather permitting, and is expected to be completed by November 2021.

The project will require alternating single lane closures and drivers should be alert for traffic pattern shifts and lane restrictions. Drivers should also anticipate travel delays during active work hours. Work will also require for traffic to be shifted at Exit 29 eastbound ramp, but access to Route 8 will remain open.

The contractor is Glenn O. Hawbaker of State College, PA. The contract cost is $8,860,680, which is to be paid entirely with federal funds.
