Contractor to Implement Market Street Detour Tomorrow

Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) provided an update today on its Route 153 (South Front Street) betterment project in Clearfield Borough. The Market Street detour is scheduled to be implemented at 4:00 PM Thursday, October 14, and remain in effect until 5:00 AM Friday, October 15.
