Bridge Rehab near Wrights Corners Starts Monday
Work to rehabilitate a bridge near Wrights Corners in McKean County will get underway Monday, April 2. The bridge is located on Route 46, just south of Wrights Corners. The rehab work will improve the structural integrity of the bridge, help prolong its useful life, and remove it from the list of structurally deficient bridges. PennDOT expects work to be complete in early October.
Temporary traffic signals will control an alternating traffic pattern through the work zone. The signals will be operational on Monday.
Work on the bridge includes deck removal and replacement, new deck surface, wall repair, and guide-rail updates. This work is part of an $872,000 contract to repair and preserve six bridges in McKean County. Work on the other five bridges is complete.
All work is weather and schedule dependent. L.C. Whitford of Wellsville, New York is the contractor on this project.
