McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. — Beginning next week, contractor Grannas Bros. Stone and Asphalt Co. of Blair County, Pa., will begin evening detours for ramp work at the U.S. 522/U.S. 30 interchange.
There will be overnight detours from 5 p.m. to as late as 7 a.m., according to a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation news release.
Only one interchange ramp will be closed at a time for paving operations.
Detours will include:
- Westbound U.S. 30 travelers wishing to access U.S. 522 will use a 4.2-mile detour that will reroute them from U.S. 30 to Lincoln Way West and to U.S. 522.
- Eastbound U.S. 30 travelers wishing to access U.S. 522 will use a 4.5-mile detour that will reroute them from U.S. 30 to Lincoln Way East and U.S. 522.
- U.S. 522 travelers will use a 2.9-mile detour that will reroute them from U.S. 522 to Pa. 1004 to westbound U.S. 30, and a 2.9-mile detour that will reroute them from U.S. 522 to Pa. 16 to Pa. 1006 in order to access U.S. 30 eastbound.
Overall work on the project will consist of concrete rehabilitation and resurfacing on U.S. 30 as well as drainage and guide-rail upgrades. In addition, the four ramps that make up the U.S. 522/U.S. 30 interchange at McConnellsburg will be rehabilitated.
Work on U.S. 30 will continue to take place during daylight hours. Motorists should expect minor delays.
The work could be delayed due to inclement weather.
This $6.5 million project is expected to be completed by mid-December, PennDOT said.
