Replacement of Two Bridges on Route 770 Starts Monday in McKean County

Replacement of Two Bridges on Route 770 Starts Monday in McKean County

Bradford - Work to replace two bridges on Route 770 in Bradford Township will get under way Monday, April 14. When work is complete next summer, area drivers will enjoy safer travel over modern structures and PennDOT will be able to remove the bridges from McKean County’s structurally deficient list.

The bridges span Minard Run about a half-mile apart near the village of Aiken. They carry an average of more than 3,000 vehicles daily. Originally built in 1927, the bridges will be replaced one side at a time.

Preliminary work begins Monday and will include sign setting, erosion and sedimentation controls, surveying, and utility work. Drivers should be alert for flaggers in the roadway, controlling an alternating traffic pattern during the preliminary work phase.

In early May, temporary traffic signals will be in place, enforcing an alternating traffic pattern at each bridge. Overall work includes replacement of the bridges, roadway and approach paving, guide rail updates, pavement markings, and miscellaneous items. The contractor for this $2.5 million job is L. C. Whitford of Wellsville, New York. All work is weather and schedule dependent.

Drivers are reminded to proceed through all work zones with caution, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.
