Restoration of Traffic Patterns around Fraser Centre State College, PA –
Weather permitting, Fraser Street will revert to two-way traffic on Friday, August 12. Crews from the State College Borough Public Works Department and the Fraser Centre contractor will begin removing signage that was necessary for the one-way operation, restoring signage that is appropriate for two-way operation, repainting lines where needed and relocating protective fencing outside of the Fraser Street cartway on Friday morning. Changes are expected to be completed before morning commuter traffic.
Although fencing is still necessary, an adequate area for pedestrians will be provided on the Fraser Centre sidewalk. In addition, the loading zone on the north side of Beaver Avenue by Fraser Centre will be removed and travel lanes will revert back to the original traffic pattern. Warning signs will be installed on Beaver Avenue, on College and on Fraser Street, south of Calder Way to warn motorists of the change.
The construction of Fraser Centre, at the corner of Beaver Avenue and Fraser Street, required the closure of one lane of traffic during the early construction phase of the 155-foot tall mixed-use building. As the Fraser Centre nears completion, the restoration of two-way traffic will alleviate any potential traffic congestion during student return to campus.
Please note that this change is dependent on the weather. If the traffic change cannot occur on Friday, the rain date will be Monday, August 15. Contact the State College Borough Public Works Department by phone at (814) 234-7140 or send an email
with any questions or concerns.
