Indiana, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is alerting motorists that lanes will be opening throughout the construction zone on Oakland Avenue (State Route 286) and Indian Springs Road in White Township, Indiana County.
As the Route 286/U.S. Route 422 widening and resurfacing project continues moving forward, the traffic control devices along Oakland Avenue and Indian Springs Road will be removed on September 26.
Between September 26 through the end of December, crews will be doing daylight, weekday lane closures throughout the project area as crews complete the final stages of the project. Traffic will be directed with flaggers throughout the operations.
Work is weather dependent. In the event of weather delays, there may be weekend work. Motorists should be alert for slowed traffic in this area and may experience delays.

Other work includes drainage and guide rail upgrades and traffic signal replacements.
The project is estimated to be completed in December 2023.
