Route 220 Bridge Replacement Project in Sullivan County Starts April 7

Route 220 Bridge Replacement Project in Sullivan County Starts April 7

A $2,409,477 bridge replacement project on Route 220 (German Street) in Dushore Borough, Sullivan County, is set to start on April 7. The contract also includes 1.7 miles of highway resurfacing in Dushore and Cherry Township.

The existing single-span concrete bridge over Little Loyalsock Creek, near the intersection with Water Street, was built in 1925 and is currently classified as structurally deficient.

This project includes replacing the old bridge with a new concrete structure on the existing alignment, drainage improvements, and concrete curb and sidewalk. The work also includes roadway base repairs and pavement resurfacing (mill and overlay) of Route 220 from the Route 87 intersection south of the borough to the Main Street intersection at the traffic signal, base repairs and pavement resurfacing (mill and overlay) of Route 87 (East Main, Mill and Carpenter streets) from the Route 220 intersection to just west of the Dushore Borough/Cherry Township line, and membrane waterproofing of the existing bridge deck on Route 87 (East Main Street) over Little Loyalsock Creek.

During construction of the new bridge, vehicular traffic will be detoured along the following:

• Route 220 truck traffic - Old Bernice Road, Route 487 and Route 87;
• Route 220 southbound car traffic – Main, Center and Julia streets;
• Route 220 northbound car traffic – Water, Turnpike and Main Streets;
• Route 87 truck traffic - Route 220, Old Bernice Road and Route 487;
• Route 87 southbound car traffic – Main, Center and Julia streets;
• Route 87 northbound car traffic – Water Street.

Traffic detours for the bridge replacement are tentatively scheduled to start on June 16 and end on Sept. 18.

Prior to the detours, the contractor will do repair work on two truck-detour routes, Old Bernice Road and Route 487. This work will start on April 7.

The resurfacing portions of the contract will take place once the new bridge is in service.

All work under this contract is scheduled to be completed by late November.

Robert C. Young, Inc. is the prime contractor.
