WARREN, Pa. – Work on the single-lane roundabout at Market Street, Pennsylvania Avenue, and Water Street is expected to move into the third stage of work on Wednesday, July 26.
Stage 3 will include the roundabout being opened to eastbound traffic on Pennsylvania Avenue and westbound traffic on Pennsylvania Avenue coming from Market Street.
The intersection will be closed to all traffic on Pennsylvania Avenue westbound and Market Street northbound. The following detours will be in place:
- Market Street northbound – Pennsylvania Avenue eastbound to Glade Bridge to Route 6 to Ludlow Street to Pennsylvania Ave to Laurel Street to Route 62 to Market Street.
- Pennsylvania Avenue westbound – Pennsylvania Avenue eastbound to Glade Bridge to Route 6 to Ludlow Street to Pennsylvania Avenue
The intersection will be closed to all truck traffic. Trucks and other large vehicles must follow the posted detour and will not be able to turn or turnaround in the work area.
Access to all businesses in that area will be maintained throughout the construction process. Stage 3 is expected to take approximately four weeks to complete.
In Stage 4 of the project, the roundabout will be open to all traffic with flaggers and short-term lane restrictions as needed.
A public education session for drivers looking for information on the Market Street Roundabout will be held from 1 – 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 26, at the Allegheny Community Center, 42 Clark Street. The program, which is open to all drivers, will include tips on using the improved intersection and general information about safely navigating roundabouts.
In addition to the roundabout, the project includes sidewalks and crosswalks, truck aprons, and updated lighting and drainage work. Information on the Market Street Roundabout construction project or roundabout safety can be found on at www.penndot.pa.gov/District1.
