Paving Project to Start Soon on Route 6 in Union City

A $1.97 million resurfacing project that will give motorists a smoother ride on more than 2.3 miles of roadway in the Borough of Union City and Union Township is scheduled to start Monday, May 15, 2023, weather permitting, and is expected to be completed by early September 2023.

Roads to be improved include:
Route 6 – from south of the Odell Street intersection to Liberty Street Extension, Union Township, 1.5 miles;
Route 8 – from south of Wayne Street to Route 6, Borough of Union City, 0.18 miles; and
Route 197 – from West of Murry Street to North Main Street, Union Township, 0.64 miles.
Work will also include milling, base repair, guiderail replacement, curb ramps, drainage, signing, improvements, and new pavement markings.

Motorists may encounter lane restrictions with traffic controlled by flaggers. Drivers should be alert for traffic pattern shifts.

The contractor is Lindy Paving, Inc., of New Galilee, PA. The contract cost is $1,967,495.70 which is to be paid with entirely with federal funds.

PennDOT urges motorists to slow down when driving in work zones, and also to be alert to changing conditions, avoid distractions and to pay attention to signs and flaggers. Drive responsibly in work zones for your safety and the safety of the workers.
