Two Potter County bridges to re-open by month’s end

Detours to be lifted

Potter County – With replacement work coming to an end, PennDOT expects to re-open two Potter County bridges by the end of the month.

Dependent on weather, a bridge spanning the White Branch of North Fork Creek on Route 1016 (North Fork Road), will re-open by the end of the day Aug. 25. An 18-mile detour has been in effect since mid-April to allow for the replacement. Once the new bridge is open, the detour will be lifted.

Also dependent on weather, a bridge spanning the Cowanesque River on Route 1021 (Teed Hollow Road) near the village of Potter Brook, will re-open by the end of the day Aug. 29. A 10-mile detour has been in effect since mid-June to allow for the replacement. Once the new bridge is open, the detour will be lifted.

If work progress allows, the bridges could be open to traffic sooner than the official re-opening dates.

Replacement of the bridges allows area drivers to enjoy safer travel on modern structures and makes it possible for PennDOT to remove the bridges from Potter County’s structurally deficient list.

Overall work on each project included bridge replacement, roadway and approach paving, guide rail updates, pavement markings, and miscellaneous items.
The contractor for the $1.1 million, Route 1016 job was LTT Trucking LLC of North Bend. Contractor for the $759,000, Route 1021 job was A.L. Blades of Hornell, N.Y.

PennDOT thanks area drivers for their patience during these closures and reminds motorists to obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.
