The water line and sewer line relocations for this project are to start April 12th.

On Monday, April 12, the first phase of work on a project to realign Route 3016 (Scalp Avenue) and Route 3018 (Bedford Street) to intersect into a single-lane roundabout in Richland and Stonycreek townships, and Geistown Borough, Cambria County, will begin. This improvement project extends 1.75 miles from the Bedford Street/Penrod Street intersection in Stonycreek Township, to the Scalp Avenue/Luray Avenue intersection in Richland Township.

Starting, Monday, the contractor will begin removing portions of the center concrete islands along Route 3016 (Scalp Avenue), Route 3018 (Bedford Street), and Route 756 (Belmont Street) to place temporary pavement. Temporary pavement and widening work on the ramps to Scalp Avenue, Bedford and Belmont Streets also will be done at this time. East and westbound passing lanes on Scalp Avenue and Bedford Street will be closed to prepare for traffic detours that will go into effect in phase two. More details about the detour, which is expected to go into effect in early to mid-May, will be released closer to that time.

This first phase is expected to be completed by early to mid-May. Road closures and detour for phase two, will go into effect at this time. Motorists should expect minor delays and should allow extra time when travelling through the area. Drivers are asked to use caution approaching and driving through all work areas.

Overall work on this project includes adding a two-way left-turn lane, replacement of the Scalp Avenue Bridge with a single-lane roundabout, which will provide safer access to properties and minor streets along the corridor, along with shoulder reconstruction, lane reconfiguration, milling and paving. New sidewalks and ADA ramps will also be added.

Other work included in this project are the relocation of water and sewer lines, as well as traffic signal upgrades.

All work on this $7.8 million project is expected to be completed by Swank Construction Co. by mid-November 2022, with a winter shut-down from November 2021 through the end of March 2022. All work is weather dependent.

Work to Realign Routes 160/756 (Elton Intersection) to Begin

PennDOT today announced that A. Liberoni, Inc., of Plum Borough, will begin work Friday, February 26, on a multi-phase project to realign the intersection of Routes 160 and 756 in Adams Township, Cambria County.

The first two phases of the project will start with demolition of several houses at north-west corner of the intersection, to allow for roadway realignment of Route 756. Currently, remediation and utility work is underway to prepare for the demolition. Waterline and driveway relocation will occur and new drainage will be installed. This will be done off alignment with minor traffic impacts until the beginning of July.

Stage three will begin in July in order to connect the new alignment of Route 756 to the southbound lane of Route 160. This phase will last two months and will involve a 13.5-mile detour of northbound traffic from Route 756 onto Route 160 North, to Route 869 North, to Route 219 South to Route 56 East back onto Route 756. Route 160 will be widened to allow for traffic to be reduced to one-lane, under temporary signal control. This will be followed by paving of the new alignment at the intersection. Work will conclude in late October, with winter shut down and will resume in spring 2022 with bridge construction on Route 2001 on the opposite side of the intersection from Route 756.

Next year’s final stage involves superstructure rehabilitation of the bridge carrying Route 2001. Crews will remove bituminous deck from the pre-stressed adjacent box beams and place a composite concrete deck. Minor approach work and paving will follow.

Traffic will be under daylight flagging and temporary signal control throughout the project, except during stage three where the above-mentioned detour will be in place. Motorists should expect minor delays and are advised to use caution while traveling through the area.

All work on this $1.8 million project is expected to be completed by August 2022. All work is weather dependent.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.

***IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE TOWNSHIP***
Please DO NOT flush wipes down the toilet even if they say they're "FLUSHABLE". They simply do not break down like toilet paper does and almost definitely cause drain problems sooner or later. The Township and a few surrounding municipalities have already ran into serious blockage issues resulting in sewage back ups and significant amount of maintenance to resolve the issue solely from wipes being flushed down the toilet. This time it was the Township's issue to do with but they can and will eventually clog your own drainage and usually require a plumber's response to resolve the issue which would make it your problem. We understand that we are in extraordinary times and one of the results is a shortage of available toilet paper because some feel the necessity to purchase and stockpile an abundance of toilet paper and our thoughts are with everyone during these times but please do not flush wipes down the toilet. It can and will cause significant drainage issues.

Please do not throw wipes or any sort of “flushable” wipe in the toilet. They do not break down like toilet paper and could cause major blockages in the sanitary sewer system.

Public agencies are urging people to throw their disinfecting wipes in the trash, warning that not doing so could cause blockages and damage to sewer systems.

Today Sunday 10/17/21 no water service at 406 Boxler Street 15904. Please help!!!
What is happening in Elton, pa.. no water for several hours.
I called this morning about having no water. The woman from the answering service did not know the location of the water main break to tell me if I was affected (could not use a map?) and did not provide me with any other information. It has been about 8 hours and I still do not have any water, and have not had any communication or updates on when water will be restored, nothing on the news, facebook, website, or phone. Some form of communication would be nice.
