Route 872 Bridge Replacement in Coudersport Resumes Monday

Route 872 Bridge Replacement in Coudersport Resumes Monday

Coudersport - Work to replace a bridge in Coudersport on Route 872 will resume on Monday, April 28. The project began in June of 2013. Once work is complete, PennDOT will be able to remove the bridge from the list of structurally deficient bridges in Potter County. Replacement will also provide area drivers with safer, more efficient travel across a modern structure.

The bridge spans Mill Creek and is located on the east side of Coudersport Borough near the American Legion. The bridge was built in 1930, is 98 feet long and carries an average of almost 1,600 vehicles each day.

Work next week will feature installation of work zone signs. Paving work is currently scheduled for the week of May 5. That work will require an alternating traffic pattern controlled by flaggers in the roadway. Motorists should expect traffic delays during the paving work. The remainder of the site work and seeding will take place once paving is complete. PennDOT expects the project to be finished later this summer.

LTT Trucking LLC is the contractor for this $1.3 million project. All work is weather and schedule dependent. Drivers are reminded to obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 680 traffic cameras. 511PA is also available by calling 5-1-1, and regional Twitter alerts are available on the 511PA website.

how about a traffic light, long past due

Gas workers don't need a red light at 6 and 872 as they are exempt from all traffic laws. What they do need is for that bridge to be beefed up for heavy gas equipment hauling.

Gas workers? As far as the length of time to put in a 50 ft bridge it is because of all the government bulls&^t regulations! And the justification of the millions of tax dollars that are spent !

Other then the botched paving on both side of that bridge, what the heck else is needed?? It's brand new! The time of delays is also ridiculous, especially for workers to & from the area. And a light at Rt. 6 & 872 is LONG overdo with the traffic there! Here we go yet again!
