McKnight(mare) road work begins on Monday!

**Update - PennDot has delayed the start by one day.  The project will begin Tuesday night at 8 PM** - geez, project hasn't even started and it is delayed.  I hope this isn't a sign of things to come for this project!

On Monday night, PennDot will kick off a project on McKnight Rd that is expected to last the summer.  Work will include: milling and resurfacing, concrete pavement patching, drainage, guide rail, concrete barrier, curb and sidewalk improvements, curb ramp installation, signing and pavement markings, and signal upgrades in Ross and McCandless Townships.   Expect construction from Nelson Run Road to Perrymont Road.

Phase I will include bridge work on the structure over Babcock Blvd, work on the intersection with Peebles and McKnight Road (near McIntyre Sq) and other work on McKnight Road.

From an email from PennDot:

The following will begin on Monday:
•         Long-term single lane traffic on McKnight Road at the bridge over Babcock Boulevard from 8 p.m. on Monday continuously through early October.
•         Nightly single lane closures on McKnight Road from Babcock Boulevard to Perrymont Road:
Monday-Friday nights
o   Northbound (outbound) – 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
o   Southbound (inbound) – 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
o   Northbound – 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. on Sundays
o   Southbound – 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. on Sundays
•         Single lane closures on Babcock Boulevard in the area of McKnight Road from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday-Friday nights.

Please use caution as you travel McKnight Road and remember that while the construction may make your travels a bit more difficult, it will make it more difficult to navigate emergency vehicles such as police cars, ambulances, and fire trucks!

Check the traffic conditions at before you venture out on McKnight(mare) Rd or plan an alternate route!
