Notice: Bank Stabilization Project

The SR (State Route) 44-86S (PennDOT) project is a two-year embankment stabilization project between Torbert Lane and Tombs Run in Watson Township. Work on this project began in the Spring of 2024 and includes stabilizing the existing embankment using soil nailing, wire mesh, and rock armoring, throughout the project limits, which are shown in RED on the below location map. Motorists can expect single lane conditions controlled by a temporary traffic signal. Work on this project is anticipated to be completed by the fall of 2025.

The SR 44-103 (EQT Partnership) project is a two-year embankment stabilization project located between SR 973 in Watson Township and Waterville in Cummings Township. Work on this project is anticipated to begin in July of 2024 and includes stabilizing 18 embankment areas throughout the project limits, which are shown in RED on the below location map. Motorists can expect delays in travel due to a combination of temporary traffic signals and flagging where work is being performed. EQT is the administrator of this $9.3 million embankment stabilization project, which is anticipated to be complete by the summer of 2025. If you have specific questions about this project, contact Steve Tokarz at 570-368-4226 or by email at [email protected].
