Road closure to be lifted

HOLLIDAYSBURG — Plum Contracting Inc. of Greensburg will make traffic changes this week on the Canoe Creek Improvements Project in Frankstown Township, PennDOT said.

Today, the contractor will lift the closure on Juniata Valley Road near the Route 22 intersection at Canoe Creek that was in place for the construction of the new alignment of Juniata Valley Road and Route 22.

On Wednesday, August 21, the contractor will be shifting traffic south to the new roadway and bridge. Motorists are advised delays will occur during the traffic switch.

Work taking place this season includes construction for the new bridge over Canoe Creek with full reconstruction of the roadway, a new box culvert, and the relocation of the Juniata Valley Road intersection.

Work on this $9.6 million project is expected to be completed by November of 2019.
