Multi-million dollar paving project underway on Rt. 957, northern Warren Co.

A multi-million dollar paving project in northern Warren County is underway.

Over six miles of Rt. 957 in Columbus, Farmington, and Freehold townships and Sugar Grove borough are included in the $4.1 million project, according to PennDOT.

“Two portions of Route 957 are included in the resurfacing project. Work started last week on the section of Route 957 that runs from the intersection with Route 6 in Columbus Township to the intersection with Price Road in Freehold Township,” according to PennDOT. “The project also includes the portion of Route 957 from the intersection with Stillwater Road in Sugar Grove Borough to the intersection with Miller Road in Farmington Township.”

Work will include milling and paving, along with ADA curb ramps, and upgrades to drainage, guiderail, and pavement markings. Franklin-based IA Construction Corporation will be doing the work at a total cost of $4,163,334.77 – all state funds from Act 89, the state’s transportation funding plan.

According to PennDOT, work started on June 3 and – weather permitting – is scheduled for completion by September 13.

“No detours are anticipated, but motorists will encounter traffic lane restrictions controlled by flaggers,” PennDOT said. “Short pedestrian detours may be needed during the construction of ADA curb ramps.”
