Officials, Family Gather For Official Opening Of Mike Franklin Bridge

Officials from PennDot, Coudersport Borough, and A.L. Blades & Son
look on as Hilda Franklin, grandmother of SPC Mike Franklin, officially
opens the new Mike Franklin Bridge over the Allegheny River in
Coudersport on Friday, August 29, 2008.
(L to R) Scott Majot Potter County PennDot Maintenance Manager,
Coudersport Councilman George Hults, Council President Andy Dubots,
SPC Mike Franklin's Grandmother Hilda Franklin, Councilman Jerry
Chitester, Councilman Wayne Hathaway, Simon Barnes of A. L. Blades
and Son, Coudersport Mayor Wick Ferman, and Construction
Superintendent Bill Elliott of A. L. Blades & Son.


Army SPC. Michael W. Franklin
22, of Coudersport, Pa. assigned to the 44th Engineer Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, Camp Howze, Korea; killed March 7,2005 when a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device detonated near his screening area in Ramadi, Iraq.





Bridge replacement started in March of 2008, with a detour set up
through residential streets in Coudersport. The $1.5 million dollar
project on East Second Street (Route 6) was finished on schedule
by workers from A.L. Blades & Son of Belmont, NY.


Workers spent the day taking down the many signs on the
detour and on the bridge location. Next to go will be the
many temporary traffic lights set up to detour traffic.
Traffic patterns on the detour returned to the way it was before
the bridge project started, much to the enjoyment of the people
who live on the streets used for the temporary detour.
