Elk Creek Road resurfacing project in Sullivan County starts next week

A $222,000 resurfacing project on a section of Route 4001 (Elk Creek Road) in Sullivan County starts next week.

Starting Oct. 15, work will take place along nine-tenths of a mile of Elk Creek Road from the intersection with Route 87 to approximately three-tenths of a mile north of the intersection with Covered Bridge Road in Hillsgrove Township.

Work includes resurfacing and drainage improvements.

At the completion of the work, the pavement will be stable and smoother and the roadway will have improved drainage. The life of the resurfaced pavement is approximately 10 years.

The project is expected to be completed by Nov. 14.

Motorists are reminded to pay full attention to their driving when approaching and passing through the work zone.

Traffic patterns back to normal on Route 6 on bridge

Work was recently completed on a bridge rehabilitation project on Route 6 in Burlington Township.

The project started in August on the bridge over Wallace Run, just east of the intersection of Covered Bridge Road. PennDOT reports that temporary lane restriction for traffic was lifted on Friday. Previously, temporary traffic signals were be used to control single-lane traffic as work was performed on the bridge.

In addition to the new deck overlay, a new guiderail was installed at the bridge.
