Route 6 restoration project in Port Allegany starts next week

CLEARFIELD — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced a start date of Wednesday, Oct. 6, for Route 6 restoration project in Port Allegany in McKean County.

The project will improve the ride quality and extend the life of approximately one mile of roadway in Port Allegany Borough between Hickory Street and Keating Avenue.

The contractor will begin base repairs on Wednesday. These repairs will continue through Friday, with flaggers in the roadway enforcing an alternating traffic pattern where drivers will take turns traveling through the work zone via the open lane. The terms of the contract prohibit work on the project from interfering with the homecoming parade.

A free program will be held from 3 to 4:30 p.m. September 25 at Chapman State Park. “Tales of the Eastern Woodlands” will be held in Pavilion 2, at the park, 4790 Chapman Dam Road, Clarendon. No registration is required. Appropriate for all ages, bring the family and sit by the fire as the group shares local legends and lore, historical anecdotes, and Native American singing, dancing, and flute. This program will feature traditional Iroquoian and Algonquian tales from the eastern woodlands, presented by storytellers Grandpa Dave Wargo, Alex Watkins, Bill DeVlieger and Native American flute performer Garry Campbell. Among the tales told are the monstrous Great Horned Serpent of the Allegany River, the elusive Sasquatch, the Little People, and a haunting selection of ghosts and spirits. Hear tales of the famous Chief Cornplanter and the first settlers, the thrilling -and at times comical- exploits of the timber and oil barons who transformed the local economy, and accounts of the Kinzua valley before, during, and after the building of the dam.  – from
