From staff reports
The southbound lanes of Route 8 are closed in Venango County from the intersection with Polk Cutoff in Sandycreek Township to the intersection with Old Route 8 in Irwin Township.
The closure, which is necessary so the roadway can be reconstructed, is expected to remain in place until Sept. 4, according to a news release from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
In this second phase of the project, the southbound lanes of the roadway will be reconstructed and several bridges will be rehabilitated.
No closures or restrictions are expected for the northbound lanes at this time.
