Reminder: Kettle Creek Bridge Job to Start Tuesday in Leidy Township

Month-long stop condition will be in effect

Renovo, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation reminds drivers that work will get underway Tuesday, May 26, to rehabilitate a bridge on Route 4001 (Kettle Creek Road) in Leidy Township, Clinton County. The bridge spans Kettle Creek, about four miles south of the village of Leidy.

Making repairs to the bridge will allow PennDOT to keep it in service for years to come. The current bridge was built in 1963 and carries an average of almost 150 vehicles daily.

On May 26, work on the bridge will begin one side at a time. To facilitate that work, a self-regulating stop sign will be in place, with drivers taking turns across the structure. An 11-foot lane width restriction will also be in effect.

Overall work will include removal of the pavement overlay on the deck, repairs to the beams and deck, and new asphalt paving. All work is weather and schedule dependent.

Crews from PennDOT Clinton County Maintenance will perform the most of the work, which is expected to last through June 26. Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College will perform the finish paving. If work progress allows, PennDOT will re-open the bridge to two-lane traffic before June 26.

Drivers are reminded to obey posted speed limits, use caution in and around work zones, and always buckle up.
