Paving work in Huntingdon County will close a portion of Route 1008 (Myton Road) next week.  Paving will start at the intersection of Route 1013 and move toward Route 305.  Work will tale place Monday (April 22nd) through Wednesday (April 24th) from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm daily, weather permitting.  A detour using Routes 305 and 1013 will be in place during the project.

 

Lane closures will begin on Monday (April 22nd) along Route 22 – 322 eastbound and westbound near the Arch Rock interchange in Juniata County.  The closures are necessary for repair and preservation work on the bridges that span Cuba Mills Road.  Lane closures and traffic control set-up will take place on the eastbound bridge first, with a closure of the right (travel) lane.  Late next week or sometime the following week, PennDOT expects to repeat the set-up pattern for the westbound bridge.  Electronic message boards and roadway signs will alert drivers to the lane restrictions.  Drivers should remain alert for stopped or slowed traffic as they move through the area.

The Pennsylvania “Drug Take Back Program” recently surpassed 100 tons of prescription drugs destroyed since Attorney General Josh Shapiro took office in 2017.  The “Drug Take Back Program” encourages members of the community to do their part in preventing prescription drug abuse by safely disposing of unnecessary prescription medicines in their homes.  In partnership with law enforcement agencies, the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs and the National Guard, collection boxes are set up across the Commonwealth to dispose of unnecessary or expired prescription medications.
