Bridge on Route 6 West of Port Allegany to Open Tomorrow

Detour will be lifted

Port Allegany, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will open a new bridge on Route 6 in McKean County tomorrow, August 23. 

The bridge spans Ostrander Hollow on Route 6, about 2 ½ miles west of Port Allegany. 

PennDOT expects to have the bridge open before 5 P.M. Tuesday. 

The detour using Routes 155, 446, and 46 will be lifted after the new bridge is open.

Crews have been working since June 21 to replace the old, structurally deficient bridge with a new box culvert. On average, almost 2,900 vehicles will use the bridge each day. With the new box culvert in place, PennDOT can remove the bridge from McKean County’s structurally deficient list.

Motorists are advised that construction work will continue through this week with flaggers in the roadway to alternate traffic as necessary.

L.C. Whitford Company, Inc. of Wellsville, New York has been the contractor on this $800,000 project.

PennDOT thanks area drivers for their patience during this closure and detour.

Route 46 bridge past the McKean Co. fairgrounds has been torn up for 3-4 weeks. Travel the road daily x 2 and they have only been working a total of 3 days on bridge and that is because the only lane open washed out with the storms and they had to fix it. No wonder it takes so long to fix them! Isn't there any oversight from the PA DOT since they contract out bridges???

What a bunch of inconsiderate whiners!! You gripe if nothing gets done and then you gripe when they do something. You should all be grateful that you even have roads to drive on and quit whining about things.
