Restriction strengthened on aging English Center suspension bridge

Restriction strengthened on aging English Center suspension bridge

Motorists who travel Route 4001 (Little Pine Creek Road) one-half mile west of Route 287 near English Center in Lycoming County are advised that a stronger restriction has been placed on the aging suspension bridge over Little Pine Creek.

Among the restrictions, vehicles nine feet or higher are prohibited from crossing the bridge. A PennDOT maintenance crew today installed stronger structures, often referred to as “headache bars” at each end of the bridge to reinforce the height restriction. The previous headache bars were made of plastic; the new ones are steel.

Motorists are reminded to obey all restrictions associated with the bridge, for safety’s sake. The 306’-long English Center suspension bridge was built in 1891. It is classified as both structurally deficient and functionally obsolete and is already posted with a 3-ton weight restriction.

A rehabilitation project on the bridge is tentatively scheduled in 2018.
