ELK COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — PennDOT announced an update to the $2.8 million Winslow Hill Roat (T-520) project in Benezette that will improve safety for residents and tourists during elk viewing season.

Improvement work is underway for the 5.6-mile-long project. Contractor Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc., is currently working on cross pipe installations with under-drain and parallel pipework planned through spring. Drivers coming through the area should expect short delays with the potential for roadway flaggers to enforce traffic stops and alternating traffic patterns.

Other work on the project will include roadway widening and reconstruction, improvement of roadway shoulders to enhance pedestrian movements, emergency vehicle accommodation, drainage and guide rails.
