Construction will begin on major improvements to Racetrack Road Monday, July 18. Racetrack Road is a shared roadway, passing through both Hempfield Township and Youngwood Borough before entering New Stanton Borough (North Center Avenue). Work will begin at the New Stanton Borough line and progress towards Wagner and Depot Street in Youngwood Borough. At this time traffic restrictions will consist of lane closures with flaggers in place, but full closures may be needed from time to time. For the most part, traffic restrictions can be expected from 7am to 4pm weekdays. Work will consist of road stabilization, storm water improvements, and resurfacing the roadway. In total, the project is expected to take 6 to 8 weeks to complete. Motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes and use caution when passing through any work zone.
