PennDOT Launches Winslow Hill Road Project Webpage | News

BENEZETTE – 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.

Work on the project is expected to begin on Monday, April 18. 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 through the Winslow Hill elk viewing area near Dewey Road.

Other works include roadway shoulder improvements to improve pedestrian movement and emergency vehicle accommodation and the replacement of an existing metal culvert, as well as drainage and guide rail updates. .

Later this spring/summer, a three-day detour will be implemented using Route 555 and Winslow Hill Road. The only work to be done under the diversion is the installation of an elliptical culvert pipe. Once the pipe is installed, all other operations will be carried out with a single lane daytime traffic pattern controlled by flaggers.

When completed in mid-August, PennDOT expects the project to improve the safety of local residents as well as visitors. This $2.8 million project was made possible through public multimodal transportation funds. The contractor for this work is Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College.
