West Main Street Bridge Replacement In Roulette Start Delayed Until August 14th

Bridge was rebuilt in 2010 in a half million dollar project that took all summer.

Update: Construction to Begin in mid-August for West Main Street (Route 4026) bridge in Roulette Township

The start date had previously been announced for week of August 1.

Clearfield, PA – Construction for a state-owned bridge on West Main Street in Roulette Township is expected to begin in mid-August as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. The start date had previously been announced for week of August 1. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Potter County’s structurally deficient bridge list.

The 68-foot bridge spans Fishing Creek near the village of Roulette. It dates from 1918 and carries an average of 360 vehicles each day.

Construction is expected to begin the week of August 14 and be complete in October. During construction, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Main Street (Township Road 404), US Route 6, and Fishing Creek Extension (Township Road 406).

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.

This bridge is referred to as JV-88 and is one 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 impacts on motorists.

Why don't they fix the bridge over the Allegheny that JKLM uses between North Hollow and 49? That bridge is about to go for a swim!

The Bridge was rebuilt in 2010 for half a million dollars?
Wow got 7 years out of that job. Wonder where the gas tax money goes? Now the state wants to tax more on gas, cable, electric, and phone, cause they spend the money so wisely. Maybe they will get two years out of this bridge like they did the one on 44 in Hebron Township!

The bonded route for JKLM is only to the top of burrows (snowmobile club) road not any farther!
