Route 30 Rehabilitation Work to Begin

Grannas Bros. Stone and Asphalt Co. Inc. of Blair County began work Monday, March 7, on a five- mile length of the Route 30 (Lincoln Highway) bypass near McConnellsburg in Fulton County.

The project consists of concrete rehabilitation and resurfacing as well as drainage and guiderail upgrades. In addition, the four ramps that make up the Route 522/Route 30 interchange at McConnellsburg will be rehabilitated with this project.

Traffic during work hours will be controlled using flaggers with alternating one-way lanes that will return to two-way traffic during nonworking hours. Long-term lane and shoulder closures will be in place. Motorists should expect minor delays.

Once the interchange work begins there will be overnight detours from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. The interchange ramps will be done one at a time throughout the duration of the project.

Eastbound Route 30 travelers wishing to access Route 522 will use a 4.2 mile detour that will reroute them from Route 30, to Route 1006 (Lincoln Way East) to Route 16 (Lincoln Way East) to Route 522.

Westbound Route 30 travelers wishing to access Route 522 will use a 4.5-mile detour that will reroute them from Route 30 to Route 1004(Lincoln Way West) to Route 522.

Route 522 travelers will use a 2.9-mile detour that will reroute them from Route 522 to Route 1004 to westbound Route 30 and a 2.9-mile detour that will reroute them from Route 522 to Route 16 to Route 1006 in order to access Route 30 eastbound.

This $6.5-million project is expected to be completed by mid- December 2011.
