Route 219 lane restrictions next week in Ridgway

Temporary lane restrictions will be in place next week along a section of Route 219 in Ridgway. Drivers will encounter an alternating traffic pattern on Route 219 between Allenhurst Avenue and Osterhout Street during daylight hours. The restrictions are necessary so crews can obtain core-boring samples for a future bridge project over Elk Creek. Motorists should be alert for flaggers in the roadway, as traffic alternates turns through the work zone. PennDOT expects this restriction to be in place May 5 through 9.Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 680 traffic cameras. 511PA is also available by calling 5-1-1, and regional Twitter alerts are available on the 511PA website.Follow PennDOT on Twitter at
