One Day Trail Closure Coming on Bridge Job near Pitt Bradford

Traffic detour remains in place

A one-day trail closure will be in place Monday as replacement work continues on a bridge project near the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

On Monday, August 7, the Richard E. McDowell Community Trail at Dorothy Lane (Route 4004) will be closed. The closure is necessary for beam setting to take place on the project. For safety reasons, there will be no access at the trail crossing on Monday. Signs alerting pedestrians to this one-day closure will be in place.

Through August 14, Dorothy Lane remains closed from Route 346 to Campus Drive. The Pitt Bradford campus remains accessible from Campus Drive or Campus Road.

PennDOT reminds drivers that an official detour around the project remains in place. The detour makes use of Route 346, Mechanic Street/South Avenue, Corydon Street, and Dorothy Lane. The detour will be in place through the completion of the project.

This state-owned bridge spans the west branch of Tunung want 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.
