Route 6 Paving, Bridge Rehabilitation Project
This two-year project will include paving 4 miles of Route 6 from west of Yankee Bush Road to Main Avenue in Conewango and Pleasant townships and the City of Warren, Warren County.
Work will also include the preservation of three bridges on Route 6 over Morse Run, Allegheny & Eastern Railroads, and the Allegheny River in Conewango and Pleasant townships and the City of Warren.
Additional work includes upgrades to drainage, traffic signals, guide rails, and signage, as well as the installation of ADA curb ramps.
Paving and work on bridge over Morse Run is expected to begin Monday, July 10, weather permitting, and is expected to be completed in late October 2023.
The existing bridge over Morse Run was built in 1950 and is classified as in fair condition. Approximately 9,500 vehicles a day use the bridge, on average.
Work on the bridges carrying Route 6 over the Allegheny River and Allegheny & Eastern Railroads is expected to take place during the 2024 construction season.
The contractor is IA Construction Corporation, of Franklin, PA. The contract cost is $10,889,778, which is to be paid for with a combination of state and federal funds.
One lane of the bridge over Morse Run will remain open throughout the project and traffic will be controlled by a temporary signal.
Motorists will encounter lane restrictions with traffic controlled by flaggers during the paving portion of the project. Drivers should anticipate travel delays during active work hours.
Starting next week, the eastbound lanes of Route 6 in Warren County will be shifted from the Warren Visitors Bureau to Robin Lane as work continues to preserve the bridge over Morse Run.
Starting Tuesday, October 10, eastbound and westbound traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction on the westbound side of the roadway. The restrictions are expected to remain in place throughout the remainder of active work this construction season, which is expected to be completed by early November 2023.
