CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — The fourth and final leg of the Geistown roundabout project will be open Tuesday, Nov. 2, weather permitting, according to PennDOT

It’s reported that the existing Bedford Street will close to thru traffic with access to local businesses only from Nees Avenue/Belmont Street. Traffic heading in or out of downtown Johnstown will start using Belmon Street into the roundabout and exit onto the newly opened fourth leg on the Bedford Street side of the roundabout.

All work on this $7.8 million project is expected to be completed by mid-November 2022, with a winter shutdown from November 2021 through the end of March 2022.

CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — Starting Wednesday, Oct. 27, the next phase of the Scalp Avenue/Bedford Street roundabout project in Geistown will begin.

Workers will be paving the Richland side of Scalp Avenue as well as paving the Bedford Street/Nees Avenue side of Belmont Street, according to Pennsylvania State Representative Jim Rigby. Paving will take place one half at a time.

It’s reported that traffic will be controlled by flaggers who periodically will direct a single lane of traffic in the opposite direction of normal traffic flow through the roundabout.

Delays of up to 15 minutes are expected at various times throughout these stages, and Rigby recommends avoiding the area if alternate routes are an option.
