Delays expected on Somerset County roads

Delays should be anticipated for motorists traveling on Route 2047, the Mason Dixon Highway, beginning Monday and continuing through Thursday, said Tara Callahan Henry, Penn­DOT spokeswoman.

Also, motorists using Route 1003 to Route 281 in Somerset County should expect delays beginning Tuesday as work begins on a resurfacing project in Brothersvalley, Stonycreek and Somerset townships. Work will begin on the 14-mile, $4.3 million project starting at the intersection with Route 219 in Berlin to Route 281 near Geiger, Callahan Henry said. Traffic in the area will be reduced to one lane and controlled by flaggers during work hours, she said. Completion is expected in late October.
