On Monday, the contractor will close the 5-way intersection of Route 3024 (Frankstown Road/Rager’s Hill Road), Route 3033 (Solomon Run Road), Route 3026 (Clapboard Run Road), and T-320 (Mount Hope Road) in Adams and Richland Townships, Cambria County.  No motorists will be permitted through the intersection.  Detour routes will vary and appropriate signs will be posted based on the route being used.  Motorists are advised to use caution and to pay close attention to posted signs. Delays should be expected.

Work includes roadway reconstruction, mill and overlay, guiderail and drainage upgrades, storm water management ponds, retaining wall construction and other miscellaneous construction as needed.
