Work on Myrtle Bridge Replacement on Route 44 in McKean County Starts Monday

Work on Myrtle Bridge Replacement on Route 44 in McKean County Starts Monday


PennDOT today announced that work to replace a bridge near the village of Myrtle on Route 44 will get under way next week. Once work is complete, PennDOT will remove the bridge from the list of structurally deficient bridges in McKean County. Replacement will also provide area drivers with safer, more efficient travel across a modern, wider structure.

The bridge spans Bells Run just east of the village of Myrtle in Ceres Township. The bridge was built in 1928, is 66 feet long and carries an average of 3,000 vehicles each day.

Preliminary work is scheduled to begin Monday, June 3, and drivers will encounter daytime flagging operations. A temporary bridge will be placed on June 11 or June 12. Traffic will begin using the temporary bridge near the end of June.

After the temporary bridge is placed into service, work will shift to remove the old bridge and replace it with a wider structure. While the new bridge is being constructed, there will be minimal traffic disruptions.

The project could last until next spring, however the project may wrap up earlier if weather and schedule permit. A.L. Blades & Sons Inc. of Hornell, NY, is the contractor for this $1.5 million job.

Drivers are reminded to watch for flaggers, use caution through all work zones, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.

the entire section of Rte 44 from NYS to Shinglehouse needs to be redone. County and residential roads in New York are in far better shape than this "state road". The shoulders are collapsing and the road itself is falling away. And despite all the rain this past week and the clogged drains, I didn't see PennDot clearing the obstructions. I pay taxes for this???
