PennDOT: Paving and Bridge Rehab Work on Route 6 Scheduled to Begin on July 10

July 5, 2023

WARREN, Pa. – A $10.8 million project to pave four miles of roadway and restore three bridges along Route 6 in Warren County is scheduled to begin next week.

The project will include paving four miles of Route 6 from west of Yankee Bush Road to Main Avenue in Conewango and Pleasant Townships and the City of Warren.

Work will also include the preservation of three bridges on Route 6 over Morse Run, Allegheny & Eastern Railroads, and the Allegheny River in Conewango and Pleasant townships and the City of Warren.

Additional work includes upgrades to drainage, traffic signals, guide rails, and signage, as well as the installation of ADA curb ramps.

Paving and work on bridge over Morse Run is expected to begin Thursday, July 10, weather permitting, and is expected to be completed in late October.

Work on the bridges carrying Route 6 over the Allegheny River and Allegheny & Eastern Railroads is expected to take place during the 2024 construction season.

One lane of the bridge over Morse Run will remain open throughout the project and traffic will be controlled by a temporary signal.

The existing bridge was built in 1950 and is classified as in fair condition. Approximately 9,500 vehicles a day use the bridge, on average.

Motorists will encounter lane restrictions with traffic controlled by flaggers during the paving portion of the project.

Drivers should anticipate travel delays during active work hours.

The contractor is IA Construction Corporation, of Franklin, PA. The contract cost is $10,889,778, which is to be paid for with a combination of state and federal funds.
