Bulletin Staff Writer

A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) official said Thursday that a small portion of a Route 981 improvement project in Unity Township has been delayed and wonít be completed until next year.

Dominec Caruso, an assistant construction engineer for PennDOT District 12, said utility relocation has halted work on a roughly 1,000-foot portion of Route 981 that slopes downhill from the existing intersection of Charles Houck and Gravel Hill roads toward a still-in-progress roundabout near Arnold Palmer Regional Airport.
