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.

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.
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.
A planning meeting was held May 9, 2018 to discuss the bridge replacement on Route 447, south of the Canadensis traffic light. (Near Stonewall Garden) The construction will not take place until 2021. The current plan is to replace one lane of the bridge at a time so that the other lane will remain open.
Engineer's drawings are available for review in the Barrett Township building.
