Removal of Temporary Traffic Signals Coming Next Week as Replacement of Two Bridges on Route 770 Winds Down in McKean County

Removal of Temporary Traffic Signals Coming Next Week as Replacement of Two Bridges on Route 770 Winds Down in McKean County

Bradford - Work to replace two bridges on Route 770 in Bradford Township is winding down, with the removal of temporary traffic signals scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 4. Once the traffic signals are removed, the roadway and bridges will return to carrying two-way traffic. The project has been made possible in part by ACT 89 funds, the state’s new transportation plan.

For the next couple of weeks, some clean-up operations and final work will be done to close out this construction season. Flaggers and daylight set-ups will be used during this work. The contractor will return to the project next spring to perform final paving and place an epoxy treatment on the bridge decks.

Once overall work is complete, 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. Replacement work on the bridges has occurred one side at a time.

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.
