Replacement Work Underway for Bridge in Hamlin Township

Smethport, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) began work this week to replace a bridge in Hamlin Township, McKean County. Replacing the bridge will remove it from the structurally deficient bridge list.

The bridge spans Kinzua Creek on Township Road 602 in the village of Kushequa. The 63-foot bridge dates from 1949 and is currently weight limit posted for 32 tons for single vehicles and 37 tons for combination vehicles. It carries an average of 60 vehicles each day.

Work will be done in a half-width configuration, with a temporary traffic signal controlling an alternating traffic pattern.

Work will include removal of the current bridge, construction of the new single-span composite beam bridge, paving, guide rail installation, pavement markings, and miscellaneous items.

The new bridge should be open to traffic by the end of October. In 2018, the contractor will return to the job site to apply an epoxy treatment to the bridge deck.

All work is weather and schedule dependent. Bob Cummins Construction Co. of Bradford, PA is the contractor on this $1.4 million project.

Drivers are reminded to move through work zones with caution, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

For more information on projects occurring or being bid this year, those made possible by or accelerated by the state transportation funding plan (Act 89), or those on the department’s Four and Twelve Year Plans, visit www.projects.penndot.gov.
