Traffic Patterns to Change as Part of Route 309 Project in McAdoo

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced Friday traffic patterns are about to change on a project to improve PA 309 in McAdoo Borough and Kline Township.

On Monday, June 10, PA 309 will be closed between Washington & Blaine Streets for waterline relocation, roadway & drainage system reconstruction, Celebration Creek box culvert replacement, new sidewalks, curbing, and curb ramps.

PA 309 car and local truck delivery traffic will be detoured onto Kelayres Road/4th Street and Market Street/Blaine Street. PA 309 between Washington and Blaine Streets will remain open for pedestrian traffic, local car traffic and local truck deliveries. Local deliveries wishing to access the borough to the north of Sherman Street are being advised to use Interstate 81 at Exit 138 to PA 424 to PA 309 south.

During this closure the existing traffic signal will be activated at the intersection of PA 309 and Blaine Street. This section of PA 309 is expected to remain closed until this November.

A separate truck detour remains in effect, with trucks being detoured to Interstate 81 at Exit 138 to PA 424 at Exit 141 to PA 309.

Most of the major work this year will be on PA 309 between Sherman Street and Blaine Street with new signal installations at the intersections of Kennedy Drive and Monroe, Blaine and Grant Streets. However, there may be other work occurring between Haddock Road and Washington Street, and between Grant Street and the Carbon County line. Motorists should remain alert for lane restrictions and changing traffic patterns in those areas.

The project entails full depth reconstruction of PA 309 between Haddock Street and the Carbon County Line. Additional work includes guide rail replacement, drainage improvements, traffic signal upgrades, and construction of Americans with Disabilities Act compliant facilities.

Lehigh Asphalt Paving & Construction Co. of Tamaqua, PA is the general contractor on the $9,499,493 million project, which began in October 2018 and is expected to be complete in November 2021.
