PennDOT to resume surface application

CLEARFIELD — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced that the contractor for a high friction surface application project impacting nine sites including Juniata County plans to resume work on Monday.

High friction surface applications improve skid resistance and enhance safety for motorists at the application sites.

The sites include a Smokey Hollow Road bridge spanning Tuscarora Creek near East Waterford in Tuscarora Township.

While crews apply the high friction surface treatments, drivers should expect to encounter flaggers in the roadway providing traffic control. PennDOT urges drivers to build extra travel time into their schedules as short delays are expected.
