Milling work on Route 27 in Warren County is expected to start Aug. 1, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

It is part of a project to pave 6.55 miles of Route 27 and complete shoulder widening, paving, and minor drainage improvements between Ninth St. in Youngsville to Route 69 in Sugar Grove.

Drivers may see lane restrictions and flaggers directing traffic.

The 94-year-old bridge that carries the road over Telic Run in Brokenstraw Township will also be replaced. A temporary signal system will be used for traffic control while this work is completed.

The 25-foot bridge is located between Telic Run Rd. and Murray Hill Rd. It was built in 1928, is classified as being in poor condition and has a posted weight limit of 28 tons for single and 40 tons for combined. Approximately 1,700 vehicles use the bridge each day.

The work is expected to be completed by November.

IA Construction Corporation, of Franklin, was awarded the $3,721,778 contract, which will be paid with state funds.
