Route 6 resurfacing project starts next week

A resurfacing project along one mile of Route 6 in Wyalusing Township, Bradford County is scheduled to start Sept. 24.

Pennsy Supply, Inc. will be working along Route 6 from just east of the intersection with Wyalusing New Albany Road east of Wyalusing to the intersection with Sterling Hill Road.

Work will include roadway and shoulder resurfacing, pavement markings and center line and edge line rumble strips.
