Two Northern Bridges Will See Needed Rehab Work Starting Monday
Work to repair and preserve two bridges – one in McKean County, one in Potter County - will get underway Monday, March 19. The preservation work will extend the serviceable life of each bridge for decades. The McKean County bridge is located on Route 6 in Liberty Township and spans Sartwell Creek. The Potter County bridge is located on Route 49 in Harrison Township and spans the north branch of Cowanesque Creek.
Crews will replace the deck on the Sartwell Creek Bridge. The Cowanesque Creek bridge will see replacement of the super-structure. Overall work includes concrete repairs, paving, guide rail updates, pavement markings, and miscellaneous construction. PennDOT expects work to be complete by November.
Each project will feature temporary traffic signals to control an alternating traffic pattern through the work zone.
All work is weather and schedule dependent. L.C. Whitford Company, Inc., of Wellsville, New York is the contractor on this $1.1 million project. Drivers are reminded to be cautious in all work zones, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.
