Detour Coming During Bridge Replacement in Roulette Township Starting Monday, June 15th
Roulette, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is advising drivers that a detour will be in effect starting Monday, June 15, as replacement work begins for Route 4003 (West Fishing Creek Road/Pomeroy Street/Clara Road) bridge in Roulette Township, Potter County. The work is expected to last through November 3 and an official 12 mile detour will be in place for the length of the project, while Route 4003 is closed at the bridge. The detour will direct drivers to use T-530, SR 4005 (East Fishing Creek Road), T-306 (West Carley Hill Road), T-341 (White Chopping Road, and back to T-530 (West Fishing Creek Road).
Starting June 15, crews will begin work to replace the current bridge with a new single span spread box beam. The bridge spans a tributary to Fishing Creek. The 54-foot bridge was originally built in 1937 and carries an average of 230 vehicles daily. Once replacement is complete, PennDOT will be able to remove the bridge from Potter County’s structurally deficient list.
Overall work will include replacement of the bridge and approach work. Work is expected to last until the beginning of November but PennDOT will open both lanes of the bridge earlier if work progress allows. Dolomite Products Company, Inc., DBA A. I.Blades of Hornell, New York, is the contractor on this $765,211.10 project.

Jim, a bit of news for you.
A federal judge has prevented the attempts of ISPs throughout the US from putting a stop to “Net Neutrality”. As of today, Friday 6/12/2015, “Net Neutrality” was in full swing. Most of us didn’t and won’t notice a difference, so what does “Net Neutrality” actually do?
Basically, “Net Neutrality” evens the playing field of the internet. It doesn’t matter if you’re a big company, small company, or an individual. One of the most notable parts of this is that ISP’s can’t throttle the speed to different services or websites in preference over another one or filter out parts of the internet. For example, a few years ago, Verizon prevented access to “Google Wallet” from your cell phone.
The fight isn’t over though. Republicans in Congress are fighting against “Net Neutrality” and a group of Internet Service Providers are still fighting it and have a hearing scheduled for later in the year.
Here’s a good Q&A about “Net Neutrality”.
