PennDOT Posts Weight Restriction on McKean County Bridge



Bradford, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is notifying area drivers that a weight limit was posted today on a bridge in Lafayette Township in McKean County. The bridge spans Kinzua Creek on Route 3006 (Westline Road), near the Westline Inn.

As of Aug. 17, the bridge is weight-limit posted for 26 tons. Vehicles exceeding the posted weight limit are required to use alternate routes.

Restricting the weight traveling on the bridge will slow deterioration and preserve safety until repairs can take place. Repair work will begin Monday, August 22 and is expected to be complete by the end of October. Once repairs are done, PennDOT expects to remove or lessen the weight posting.

The bridge was originally built in 1941, is 100 feet long, and carries an average of just over 200 vehicles daily. The bridge is currently scheduled for full replacement in 2020.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 770 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
