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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
