The anticipated work on the Route 8 four lanes will begin Monday with the southbound traffic being detoured down Old Route 8 in Venango County. Southbound motorists will notice new traffic patterns by the time they hit Polk Cutoff.
During the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the northbound pavement and bridges, which PennDOT hopes will be completed by the end of October, motorists heading north will be using the southbound lanes.
Temporary repairs will be made along the southbound lanes over the next two weeks to prepare for the shifting of northbound traffic to those lanes weather permitting.
The southbound lanes are scheduled to be redone next year.
