Loucks Mills Road To Close For 6 Weeks For Bridge Repair August 28th

Potter County
Six-Week Detour Coming for Bridge Repair Work in Potter County

Galeton –Work to repair a bridge on Route 1003 (Loucks Mills Road) in Potter County will get under way Tuesday, Aug. 28, and a detour will be in place. The bridge spans Judson Hollow on Route 1003, about one mile north of Route 6.

Repairing the bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Potter County’s list of structurally deficient bridges and keep it in service for years to come. The bridge was built in 1952, is 30 feet long and carries an average of 250 vehicles per day.

In order to make the repairs, a portion of Route 1003 will be closed to traffic, and a detour will be in place. Motorists following the official detour will use Route 49, Route 449, Route 6, and Route 1003.

PennDOT Potter County Maintenance will perform the work, which is expected to be complete by Oct. 12. Work will include deck replacement and abutment and wing repairs. PennDOT will re-open the bridge and road sooner than Oct. 12 if work progress allows. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
