PennDOT gains approval for State Route 62 Roadside Enhancement Project

Contact(s): Collin Shephard

The Bradford District Ranger, Rich Hatfield, approved the State Route 62 Roadside Enhancement Project.  This project allows for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) to remove hazard trees and clear trees along approximately two miles of PennDOT’s right-of-way on National Forest System lands between Waid Run and Slater Run in Warren County.  Hatfield said, “This project addresses an increasingly dangerous situation of trees falling onto State Route 62.  Through this decision, PennDOT will manage their right-of-way and also address dead and dying trees outside the right-of-way.” Traffic controls will be implemented by PennDOT while the work is being done.
