As discussed, road construction is anticipated to begin on March 1 and will include traffic control implementation of single lane traffic with a traffic signal on SR 390 near the intersection of Dutch Hill Road (near Skytop Lodge) pertaining to PennDOT ECMS project 76369 in Barrett Township, Monroe County, PA. Project is anticipated to complete in November 2018.

During the 2018 summer season, we will be paving Mill Creek Drive, High Road and Beartown Road. 
This decision was based on road conditions and traffic volume.

We will also pave Upper Seese Hill Road with the turnback funds from the state.

5/22/18 - Update:

I was surprised to get a call back from Penn Dot. "Todd" filled me in on the schedule of roads to be repaired...highways first then secondary. He/They know all about 447 and get calls and emails every day.

But he said that should not stop people from logging their concerns.  The whole highway is scheduled for a repaving in 2019.  So let's bombard them.

Bridge work will close 191 for 14 months
Marathoners and motorists beware.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will close the stone bridge tunnel on routes 191/447 in Pocono Township for a rebuild and repair, creating traffic havoc for over a year.

The roadway is a major thoroughfare connecting Stroud Township with Paradise and Barrett townships.

The project, still in the design phase, will begin sometime in June or July of 2018 and take about 14 months to complete, according to George Gumas of HNTB Corporation, the designer and manager of the project.
