Pine Creek Bridge Job to start Monday in Potter County

Pine Creek Bridge Job to start Monday in Potter County

Ulysses, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announces that work will get underway Monday, April 20, to replace a bridge on Route 449 in Potter County. The bridge spans Pine Creek a half-mile north of the village of Brookland. It will be replaced by a box culvert.

The current bridge was built in 1930 and carries an average of 632 vehicles daily. Replacing the bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Potter County’s structurally deficient list.

Initial work will include clearing and grubbing, along with erosion and sedimentation controls.

A two-lane temporary run-around will be constructed upstream of the current bridge. The temporary road will carry traffic during construction of the new box culvert. PennDOT expects the temporary roadway to be in service later this spring. Traffic will continue to use the existing bridge until the temporary road is opened.

Overall work will include removal of the existing bridge, placement of the new box culvert, paving, and guide rail updates. All work is weather and schedule dependent. The new box culvert is expected to open to traffic in early August.

Dolomite Products Company, Inc./A.L. Blades of Hornell, New York is the contractor on this $1.1 million project. Drivers are reminded to obey posted speed limits, use caution in and around work zones, and always buckle up.
