Crews encounter numerous challenges on 255 project
ST. MARYS – Due to several challenges being encountered by crews working on the state Route 255 project, the anticipated completion date of early September could be pushed back slightly later into the fall. Among the road blocks being encountered are weather, hitting rock while installing utility lines and discovering numerous drains from homeowners which were unknown prior to construction. "We finished the first phase, last year's work, on time. Despite these items, we still intend to finish this year with all lanes completely paved and opened to traffic," said Marla Fannin, PennDOT District 2 Community Relations Coordinator.
