Construction for Route 49 Bridge Complete

Potter County Bridge replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership Project

Clearfield, PA – The Route 49 (Northern Potter Road) bridge that’s been under construction as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project has opened to traffic. The bridge spans Marsh Creek near the village of Mills in Harrison Township. Replacing the bridge allows PennDOT to remove it from Potter County’s structurally deficient list.

Replacement work began in late June and the bridge reopened to traffic on September 15, more than a month ahead of schedule. Motorists may encounter short-term flagging operations as crews complete the last stages of work.

Construction was performed by Clearwater Construction. The new crossing is longer and wider than the one it replaced and is designed with a 100-year lifespan.

This bridge is referred to as JV-84 out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
