Four aging bridges on Route 44 to be addressed under contract; three-month detour begins May 31

Travel Advisory
Four aging bridges on Route 44 to be addressed under contract; three-month detour begins May 31

Four aging bridges on Route 44 in northwestern Lycoming County will be addressed soon under a contract that includes two bridge replacements and two bridge rehabilitations between Route 414 and Haneyville.

Starting Tues., May 31 there will be a detour lasting approximately three months. The signed detour will follow Route 664, Little Plum Run Road, Big Plum Run Road, Park Avenue, Route 150 (Woodward Avenue), Avis Road, Central Avenue, Pine Creek Road, Route 44. (see detour map)

PennDOT is taking a number of steps to minimize the impacts on traffic, including the following:

The construction project duration was compressed to have the least negative impact on property owners, business owners, the traveling public and the school district. Originally this work was anticipated to occur between June 1 and Oct. 15. However, after a scheduling meeting with construction personnel, it was determined that the project could be condensed to occur between May 31 and Aug. 23, when the bridges are scheduled to be reopened to traffic.

Because of the detour, it was decided that four bridges will be worked on simultaneously. Working on the four bridges at one time will eliminate the need to interrupt traffic at various additional times in the foreseeable future.

To assist travelers, temporary destination signs for Black Forest and Haneyville have been added to the traffic control plan.

LTT Trucking LLC is the primary contractor for this $1,324,487 project. All work is scheduled for completion by September 2.

I wish someone was checking the condition of the steel bridge on Honeoye Street going out of Shinglehouse. It was on the top of the list of most deteriorated, dangerous bridges in the State of Pa. last year.
