BARNETT TWP., Pa. (EYT) – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to view a display of plans to resurface River Road (Route 2002) in Barnett Township.

The roadway is located in Barnett Township between the Forest County and Jefferson County line, and the Forest County and Clarion County line.

Plans for the project will be on display as follows:

Date: September 26 to October 17, 2018

Time: 8:00 a.m. to noon on Mondays; 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Wednesdays

About the project:

Construction will include bituminous asphalt paving, roadway cross slope build up, asphalt patching, drainage, guiderail, and pavement marking upgrades.

Construction is expected to occur in 2019. A detour of approximately two weeks in duration is proposed, using Route 36 and Route 899.
