Phoenix Run Road To Be Closed For Bridge Replacement Starting Monday

Work Starts Next Week on Route 1005 Potter County Bridge Replacement
Roadway will be closed; detour planned

Clearfield – A PennDOT maintenance crew in Potter County will begin work Monday, August 16 to replace a bridge in Pike Township, Potter County.

The project, near the village of Sunderlinville, will require Route 1005 (Phoenix Run Road) to be closed.


Work will begin at 6 am Monday to replace a bridge that spans Little Phoenix Run. A Potter County bridge crew will remove the bridge and install a precast box culvert.

The project will be complete by Tuesday, August 24, however the roadway could re-open earlier depending upon the weather.


The Little Phoenix Run Bridge is one example of a cost-effective bridge improvement program at work in PennDOT District 2. PennDOT’s county maintenance crews use precast box culverts or planks to replace selected, small bridges (eight to 20 feet in length) that are structurally deficient.


Although area drivers can use local roads around the closure, PennDOT’s official detour is 42 miles in length and directs motorists to use Route 49, Route 1003 and U.S. Route 6.

PennDOT reminds motorists to follow detour signs, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.

Why doesnt PennDOT use a couple more signs and allow people to use the local roads instead of a 42 mile detour?!

Are the "local roads capable of handling the amount and weight of the traffic that is required? Was PennDOT unable to acquire access to these "local" roads due to them being owned by the municipality? They cannot just start sending traffic where it cannot go or is not authorized to go. There is a lot involved with a major undertaking such as this.
