Update on Bridge Replacement Work near Pitt Bradford

Detour will be used during construction

Bradford, PA – Replacement work has started on a bridge near the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

Starting the week of July 17, Route 4004 (Dorothy Lane) from Route 346 to Campus Drive will be closed, which will limit access to the Pitt Bradford campus. During the road closure the Pitt Bradford campus will remain accessible from Campus Drive or Campus Road. This closure will be in effect until August 14.

The state-owned bridge spans the west branch of Tunungwant Creek on Dorothy Lane at Pitt Bradford. The existing bridge is weight-limit posted for 27-tons for single vehicle and 32-tons for combination vehicles. It carries an average of almost 1,200 vehicles each day. Replacing the bridge will eliminate the weight posting and allow PennDOT to remove it from McKean County’s structurally deficient list.

Overall project work will include replacement of the old bridge, approach paving, guide-rail upgrades, pavement markings, and miscellaneous items.

All work is weather and schedule dependent. The L.C. Whitford Company, Inc. of Wellsville, New York is the contractor on this $3 million project. PennDOT expects the bridge to be complete and open to traffic in early November.

Drivers are reminded to follow posted detour signs, 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.

That long to fix a tiny bridge? ��Must be a union job.

No doubt it's a union job, but at lest penndot has placed time limits on bridge replacements. In the past this bridge replacement would have taken 3 to 4 months but penndot wised-up. (I know it's hard to believe)..
unions suck

3 million for a 20' bridge over a ditch? That a typo? And like 522 said... That long??? So if Penn Dot and L.C. Whitford partnered to replace a bridge on the Allegheny in Pittsburgh it would triple the national debt of my math is correct.
