PennDOT plans guardrail work

BELLEFONTE — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has announced that drivers will encounter a daylight left lane closure on I-80 eastbound today as crews perform a high priority guardrail repair.

The guardrail was damaged in a vehicular crash. After the repair, no other closures are scheduled through 2020.

The I-80/Route 26 local interchange project is east of Bellefonte and is part of a long-awaited safety improvement project in Centre County. HRI Inc. of State College is the contractor on the $52 million project.

The local interchange project is the first of a three-phase project to build local access, a high-speed interchange connection between I-99 and I-80, and to make improvements on Jacksonville Road. An initial $35 million for the project was announced in July 2018, coming through a federal Infrastructure for Rebuilding America grant. Completion of all three phases will support regional freight economy and improve the reliability of roadway travel throughout the region.
