The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has postponed resurfacing work that was supposed to begin Wednesday on Interstate 79 in Marshall.

A PennDOT spokesman said continuing discussions with the contractor for the work has pushed it back until next week.

"We are re-evaluating the approach to repairs on the roadway," PennDOT spokesman Steve Cowan said in a news release this afternoon.

The $7.71 million milling and resurfacing project now is expected to begin Monday, Mr. Cowan said.

Work includes milling and resurfacing 3.48 miles of I-79 in each direction between the Route 910/Wexford (Exit 73) interchange and Butler County. Additionally, base repairs, guard-rail upgrades, bridge preservation work, ramp improvements and updates in signage and lane markings will occur.

Traffic restrictions will occur during the work, PennDOT has said.
