Travel Advisory: Single-Lane Traffic Planned Next Week on Route 1008 for Bridge Replacement Project in Jefferson County

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Pa. – Single-lane, flagger controlled traffic will begin on Route 1008, Rattlesnake Road, next week as part of the Lanes Mills Bridge #4 replacement project in Snyder Township, Jefferson County.

Beginning, April 24, the flagger-controlled lane restrictions will be in place to install temporary traffic signals on Route 1008 as part of the project to replace the bridge carrying Route 1008 over Rattlesnake Creek.  The temporary signals will remain in place for the duration of the project.

This nearly $1.5 million bridge replacement project is being constructed by Kukurin Contracting, Inc., and is expected to be completed in mid-November.

Motorists should slow down and use caution in work zones, and obey flaggers and other traffic control devices. Expect congestion and delays in the project area. Fines are doubled for violations in work zones. Drive responsibly for your safety and the safety of the workers.
