CLEARFIELD – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has launched a webpage for the Winslow Hill Road project in Elk County and encourages the public to check the site for regular updates.

The project involves the widening and reconstruction of the roadway on a 5.4 mile section of Winslow Hill Road (T-520) in Benezette Township. The work area extends from the bottom of Winslow Hill to the top of the hill past the PA State Game Lands Elk Viewing Center near Dewey Road.

Later this spring/summer, a three-day detour will be implemented using State Route 555 and Winslow Hill Road.
