Atherton Street project updates announced

STATE COLLEGE — Workers will begin installing cross pipe in the Westerly Parkway intersection starting at 6 p.m. Sunday, March 3, as part of the ongoing Atherton Street project.

A news release from PennDOT says the project, which stretches from Curtin Road to just north of the Westerly Parkway in State College, will occur around the clock until 5 p.m. Friday, March 8.

Flaggers in the roadway will provide traffic control. PennDOT will set traffic signals to flash mode while crews occupy the intersection.

On Monday, March 4, crews will cut waterline trenches and remove trees between White Course Drive and Railroad Avenue. Flaggers in the roadway will provide traffic control during daylight hours.

Tuesday, March 5, through Thursday, March 7, crews will begin installing waterline through this portion of the work zone. Flaggers will continue providing traffic control.

PennDOT and the contractor are pursuing this aggressive schedule because Penn State and State College Area High School are on spring break. The goal is to accomplish as much work during this window as possible to minimize traffic impacts on student commuters for the rest of the school year.
