PENNDOT TO POST WEIGHT LIMITS ON GENESEE RIVER BRIDGE

30 Ton Weight Limit

Posting effective Monday on Route 449 bridge


CLEARFIELD – On Monday, May 11, PennDOT will post weight limit restrictions on the Genesee River Bridge on Route 449 in the village of Genesee, Potter County.

Effective Monday, PennDOT will post the bridge for a 30-ton weight limit for single vehicles and a 40-ton weight limit for combination vehicles. The Genesee River Bridge spans the west branch of the Genesee River along Route 449, near the New York state line. Vehicles that exceed the posting limit will need to use an alternate route.

The decision to restrict the weight limit of the bridge was the result of a recent inspection. The Genesee River Bridge was built in 1924, is 71 feet long and carries an average of 2,020 vehicles per day. The posting will remain in place until repairs can be made.

For more information on roadway construction and maintenance operations, visit the PennDOT website at www.dot.state.pa.us.

What are people suppose to do. All the bridges and or roads have weight restrictions. All the alternate route are also restricted. What the hell is wrong with Penndot?

I would not want to bond the bridge, if it falls apart with your truck on it because it is so unsafe, you'd be responsible for the repairs!
