Pavement Preservation Work to Begin on Interstate 99 in Bedford and Blair Counties
Concrete patching will begin Wednesday, July 14, on both the northbound and southbound lanes of I-99 between Exit 1 (Bedford/PA Turnpike) and Exit 3, (Johnstown/Cessna), in Bedford County. This is the next phase of a larger project being completed in four separate work zones along I-99 in Bedford and Blair Counties.
Traffic will be temporarily reduced to a single lane in the work zones. Motorists are advised to use caution and watch for construction personnel and vehicles.
Additionally, preparation for concrete patching work on the northbound and southbound lanes of I-99 will start next Wednesday, July 21, between Exit 7 (Osterburg/St. Clairsville) and Exit 10 (Imler/Blue Knob).
Overall work on this project consists pavement preservation of approximately 31.5 miles of I-99 and all interchange ramps in both Bedford and Blair Counties. The project will run from Exit 1 (Bedford/Turnpike) to Exit 15 (Sproul/Claysburg). Work includes application of one-inch of thin overlay wearing course, concrete pavement patching, rumble strips, guide rail, drainage upgrades, cable median barrier, pavement markings and any other needed miscellaneous construction.
