Route 246 Bridge Replacement Starts August 16 in McKean County

Detour will be in place

Bradford, PA – On Wednesday, August 16, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will begin a bridge replacement project on Route 246 in Otto Township, McKean County.

The bridge spans a branch of Baker Run, near the village of Rixford. The existing 12-foot bridge dates from 1927 and carries an average of almost 1,500 vehicles each day. It will be replaced with a new box culvert, which will allow PennDOT to remove it from McKean County’s structurally deficient list.

Starting August 16, the bridge will be closed and an official detour using Routes 246, 346, and 646 will be in place. Drivers familiar with the area may choose to use alternate routes. The detour will be in place through the September 8 project completion date.

Once school begins on August 28, school buses will be able to move through the work zone and avoid the detour. Should work progress allow, PennDOT will open the new box culvert and remove the detour prior to the September 8 completion date.

This project is a cooperative effort between PennDOT McKean County Maintenance and contractor L.C. Whitford of Wellsville, New York. PennDOT McKean County Maintenance will perform erosion and sedimentation control, excavation of the old box culvert, and back-filling of the new box culvert. The contractor will deliver and set the new box, perform paving and guiderail installation, and line painting. All work is weather dependent,

Drivers are reminded to follow posted detour signs, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
