Your Story – What’s with the delay of I-79 milling project?

Local News

If you travel Interstate 79, chances are your ride isn’t as smooth as you would like.  One viewer is wondering if PennDOT is planning on paving the milled roadway before winter.  JET 24 is looking into ‘Your Story’ tonight…

The answer, plainly, from PennDOT is, ‘No’.  There will be no paving until spring.  A PennDOT spokesperson tells us that the original plans called for the milled road to be paved late this summer, but they sent their paving equipment to the central and eastern part of the state to help fix roads there following major flooding some weeks ago.  Because of that, the paving schedule changed, pushing the I-79 project to spring.
