Golden Eagle Construction Co., the contractor for the $2.2 million Route 119 paving project in Dunbar Township and Connellsville, is expected to finish placing the leveling pavement Friday, according to Valerie Petersen, community relations coordinator for PennDOT District 12.

But motorists should know the project is far from over.

Work on the top coat will begin next week.

The project includes base repair, milling, resurfacing, pavement base drain, joint repair, guide rail, tree trimming, minor signal upgrades, delineation, signing a four-lane roadway and other miscellaneous construction, Petersen said.

Work is expected to continue through mid-July in the project area in Connellsville and Dunbar Township, from approximately the intersection of Route 119 and Bell Drive to the intersection of Route 119 and High Street.

In the meantime, motorists should be aware of changing traffic patterns and single-lane restrictions. A number of accidents have been reported in the construction zone.
