4th Potter County Bridge To See Preservation Work Start Next Week

Preservation work starts next week on another Potter County bridge

Coudersport – Detours began in mid-May for preservation work on two Potter County bridges. A detour and work on a third bridge is set to start June 9 and work on a fourth bridge is set to start June 12. Once rehabilitation work is complete, area drivers will enjoy safer travel on bridges that will remain in service for years to come.

The latest bridge to see work start up spans the south branch of Oswayo Creek on Route 44 in Hebron Township. Starting June 12, temporary traffic signals will be in flash mode in the work zone. On June 17, the signals will be in full operation, enforcing an alternating traffic pattern across the bridge.

The other three bridges currently seeing repairs are:
A bridge spanning the South Branch of Pine Creek on Mill Street in Galeton.
A bridge spanning Card Creek on Route 3004 (Kim Hill Road) in Roulette Township.
A bridge spanning Bradley Run on Route 4003 (Clara Road) in Clara Township (Starting June 9).

The one-mile detour for the Mill Street/Galeton bridge uses Mill Street, Clinton Street, Hammond Avenue, Route 144 and Route 6. The detour for the 3004/Roulette Township bridge uses Kim Hill Road, Fishing Creek Road and Route 6. The detour for the 4003/Clara Township bridge will use Moffit Road, Route 4005 (Whitney Creek Road), Route 44, and Route 4003 (Clara Road).

All work is weather and schedule dependent.

This work is part of a $2 million contract to preserve seven bridges in Potter County. The other three bridges include one on Route 49 over Steer Run in Eulalia Township, one on Route 49 over Ludington Run in Ulysses Township, and one on Route 144 over Cross Fork Creek in Stewardson Township. Work on these three bridges will also feature temporary traffic signals, with work scheduled to start later this summer.

L.C. Whitford Company, Inc of Wellsville, New York is the contractor on this project, which is expected to finish by the end of the year. Overall work will include deck and concrete repairs, rebar installation, latex overlay, abutment and wing wall repairs, guide rail updates, roadway paving, pavement markings and miscellaneous items.

Drivers are reminded to obey posted speed limits, follow detour signing, move through work zones with caution and always buckle up.
