The completion of a project to rebuild more than 500 feet of the Route 62/Route 8 (Allegheny Boulevard) retaining wall in Sugarcreek Borough has been pushed back several weeks.
PennDOT spokeswoman Jill Harry said the project, scheduled for completion on Monday, may take until Nov. 9 to finish.
The project includes the removal and reconstruction of 540 feet of the southern end of the retaining wall, which runs between the northbound lanes of Route 62/Route 8 and the Allegheny River. Work also includes roadway reconstruction.
The detour, which restricts both northbound and southbound traffic to one lane between Oil City and Reno, will remain in place until the end of construction, Harry said.
PennDOT began work on the project in late June.
The contract cost is $3,643,567, which is to be paid with 80 percent federal funds and 20 percent state funds.
