PennDOT Outlines Construction Projects for 2017 Season

HONESDALE — PennDOT’s 2017 construction season in Wayne County targets 83 miles of state roads scheduled for surface improvements as well as 10 bridge projects, a half dozen slide repair jobs and other safety projects and enhancements.  View the map here.

More than half of the surface improvements will take place in the northern part of the county, while most of the bridge work is in the south and central regions.

The county maintenance crews will be applying oil and chip treatment on Callicoon, Conklin Hill, River, Adams, Brook, Pond, Finn Swamp, Spinner, Weniger Hill, Kinghill, Starlight Lake, Starrucca Creek and Rock Lake Roads along with Miller Drive.  Calkins, Rutledgedale and Beech Grove Roads will receive base and edge repairs this year while Smith Hill and Gallilee Roads will be paved.

The 2017 schedule includes bridge projects on Routes 191, 296, 371 and 652 and the Narrowsburg and Kellam bridges over the Delaware River.

Contractor will also be paving just over half a mile of White Mills Road from Route 6  and just over eight miles of Cortez Road. Crews will also be repairing a series of slides along Routes 191, 370 and 590 as well as on Milanville Road, Owego Turnpike and Maple Grove Road. The Route 191 and 590 four corners in Hamlin has also been slated for improvement.

Finally, crews will be paving the shoulders of Route 652 from the Delaware River to Route 6 and installing edge line rumble strips to improve safety.

PennDOT continues the major reconstruction project on Interstate 84, with the rebuilding efforts moving into Wayne County this season.

Current Annual Report


Each year, by March 1st, the Wayne County Planning Department prepares an Annual Report of the department’s activities as required by The Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code (PMPC) or (MPC), Act 247 of 1968.  This report is designed to not only fulfill the MPC requirement, but also to serve as a resource document for Wayne County’s municipalities and residents.  This document typically illustrates the subdivision and land development activity that took place in the County during the previous year.  Also illustrated are recent State, County and local issues.  The report also contains a Municipal Index, which provides local information, such as: the names of elected officials; meeting dates and times and contact information.  PDF copies of the recent reports can be viewed or downloaded by clicking on the links below:
