Six Week Detour Coming for Bridge Repair Work on Honeoye Road near Shinglehouse

Six Week Detour Coming for Bridge Repair Work on Honeoye Road near Shinglehouse
Detour will be in effect, starting Oct. 1

Shinglehouse –Work to repair a bridge on Route 4021 (Honeoye Road) in Potter County will get under way Monday, Oct. 1, and a six-week detour will be in place. The bridge spans Honeoye Creek on Route 4021, just northeast of Shinglehouse.

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 1938, is 74 feet long and carries an average of 833 vehicles per day.

In order to make the repairs, a portion of Route 4021 will be closed to traffic, and a detour will be in place. Motorists following the official detour will use Route 4014 (Plank Road), Route 4023 (Eleven Mile Road), and Route 44. PennDOT expects the closure and detour to be in place until Nov. 9. Motorists familiar with the area may choose to use alternate routes.

Work will include repairs to the deck, wings, and abutments. PennDOT will re-open the bridge and road sooner than Nov. 9 if work progress allows. Once the bridge is open, some work may be completed under an alternating traffic pattern and daytime flagging. All work is weather and schedule dependent.

This work is part of a contract to repair and preserve 21 bridges in Potter, Cameron, and Clearfield counties. The Honeoye Creek Bridge and the Route 6 Roulette Bridge are the last ones addressed through this preservation contract. All work is weather and schedule dependent. Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $4.4 million/21 bridge project.

That's great that the detour will take people over Plank Road. It's so broken up on the edges that it's practically a one lane road! If you meet a car coming the other direction, one of them has to pull off onto what's left of the shoulder. Let's hope there aren't any accidents.

This could be interesting. some of the non-detour roads are not wide enough for 2 cars to pass with ease and some places they are only one lane. Circus time....
