Plans underway to start construction on busy Washington Co. road

WASHINGTON, Pa. — Over the next three years, a big stretch of Jefferson and Wylie avenues in the city of Washington will be redone and that could lead to a lot of frustrated drivers.

PennDOT said the road will be resurfaced and widened and that will allow for a right turn lane to the on-ramp for Interstate 70 eastbound.

The project is expected to start in April and last three years with the first year consisting of utility work at the intersection with Wylie Avenue.

The other two years of the project will include full reconstruction of Jefferson and Wylie avenues.

The project will also include new sidewalks, upgrades to drainage and signing and pavement markings.

PennDOT plans to open bids on the project Feb. 27. It’s expected to cost between $7 to $12 million dollars.
