The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is expected to select Glenn O. Hawbaker for its Route 322/Potters Mills Gap phase three project in Centre County.
On March 23, the state agency said that it successfully bid the project, and Glenn O. Hawbaker was the low bidder. The department is expected to award the $82.37-million project in early May.
“This last phase of the project will promote safer travel, ease the congestion seen during high traffic volumes, and make the movement of goods and services easier and more timely,” PennDOT District Executive Karen Michael said in a statement. “We are thrilled to see this job get underway.”
The phase three calls for the reconstruction of Route 322 from Sand Mountain Rd. to Potters Mills, including a new Route 322/Route 144 intersection that will be a part of the local access road.
PennDOT expects the new roadway to be completed in the fall of 2020.
