North Street project expected to start today

MEADVILLE — Drivers are advised to plan extra time for traveling through or around downtown Meadville beginning this morning.

Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s long-awaited North Street Improvement Project is expected to get under way today and continue through the end of the current construction season.

Businesses along the North Street corridor will remain open for business, but the roadway will be closed down one block at a time for the replacement of Meadville Area Sewer Authority’s aging lines. Construction will begin at the intersection of North and Water streets. During the next few days, drivers should also avoid Water Street in the vicinity of North; the replacement of the sewer manhole at the intersection of Water and North is the first item on the construction agenda.

Today, work crews are expected to mobilize equipment, saw cut from existing manhole at the intersection of Water and North streets east along North Street to the existing manhole at intersection of North and Market streets and begin exploratory excavations of existing utilities.

From Tuesday through Thursday, work crews are expected to install the new sewer manhole and begin replacing the existing 12-inch sanitary line and laterals.
