Detour Scheduled to Begin June 9 for Bridge Replacement on Route 1021 in Potter County

Detour Scheduled to Begin June 9 for Bridge Replacement on Route 1021 in Potter County

Potter County - Work to replace a bridge in Harrison and Hector townships in Potter County will start Monday, with a detour in place June 9. When work is complete, area drivers will enjoy safer travel on a modern structure. PennDOT will be able to remove the bridge from Potter County’s structurally deficient list.

The bridge spans the Cowanesque River on Route 1021 (Teed Hollow Road), near the village of Potter Brook and carries an average of 87 vehicles daily. Originally built in 1938, the current bridge will be replaced with a single span, concrete bridge. Beginning Monday, crews will be performing preliminary work, including site set-up.

The actual replacement work requires closing the bridge. The closure is expected to be in effect June 9, at which time a 10-mile detour will be in place.

Overall work includes bridge replacement, paving, guide rail updates, drainage, and miscellaneous items. The contractor for this job is A. L. Blades of Hornell, N.Y. The project is expected to be complete by September. All work is weather and schedule dependent.

Drivers are reminded to follow official detour signs, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.
