ClearfieldDrivers in the region are reminded that a detour around Route 219 �Bootjack� roadwork will begin on Thursday, June 10.


This detour will route northbound traffic down the �truck bypass� to Route 120 and back to Route 219.  Signs will be in place directing motorists through the detour. The detour is expected to be in place for about 15 days. Southbound traffic will follow the normal route. 


The activation of the detour marks the start of Phase 2 on the project. Phase 2 stretches northbound from the truck bypass to the intersection of Main and Depot Streets.


Along with the detour, motorists should be alert for:


         Channelizing devices will be in place at both ends of the project to guide traffic.

         Flaggers will be present to direct traffic as necessary.

         Southbound lanes will experience lane shifts as construction progresses.

         Southbound traffic will be one lane only during construction.

         No restrictions will be in place for oversized loads.

         Minor delays are possible but not anticipated.

         Most delays will occur during peak traffic periods between 7am and 9am and between 2 pm and 4 pm.


Overall work will include guide rail updates, barrel replacement on the emergency truck runoffs, signage updates and roadway resurfacing. H.R.I. Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $920,000 job. PennDOT expects all work to be complete in July.


Motorists are also reminded that a Route 120 detour, west of Ridgway will also be in effect for four weeks, starting June 16.


PennDOT reminds motorists they can log on to or call 511 from any phone to check traffic conditions before heading out.
