Coudersport Bridge Detour May Start Wednesday

For many of those who have moved away some years ago, Coudersport was referred to as a one-traffic light town.

Over the years with the Adelphia infusion, a second light was added at Sheetz.

But things are different now---you can find all kinds of traffic lights all over town controlling the detour PennDOT established to go round the bridge on East Second Street over the Allegheny River. The bridge work was to start Monday but as of Tuesday afternoon, it was still open.

Pictured here are only a few of the new traffic lights in Coudersport.

PennDot has asked WFRM to let motorists, especially local residents know, that traffic patterns have changed in Coudersport to accommodate the detour necessitated by the reconstruction of the Route 6/Mike Franklin Bridge near the consistory.
Although Route 6 remains open today, officials anticipate the bridge will be closed starting Wednesday if materials are received.

During the project, Oak and Maple Streets have become one way at Mill Street. Oak runs westbound and Maple runs eastbound. A number of new stop signs have been erected on Borie Street and motorists are advised to observe them.

In fact, Coudersport Borough Police Chief Lee Gross has asked WFRM to remind drivers to pay strict attention to the new stop signs and flashing lights in order to prevent collisions.

PennDot anticipates the project will be completed in mid-August.
