Trout Run Bridge on Route 555 to Open Today

Weedville, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is nearing completion on its Route 555 Trout Run bridge project in the village of Benezette, Elk County. The bridge will be open to traffic today by 5:00PM, about two-weeks ahead of schedule. The new bridge is a single-span, concrete T-beam structure and carries an average of 400 vehicles daily.

Drivers are reminded to use caution as work will continue at the bridge site. Crews will continue to work in the area until mid-September to perform final grading and remove the temporary bridge. Drivers should remain alert for crews on or near the roadway through the final completion date.

The old bridge had been posted for “one truck at a time”. With a new bridge in place, PennDOT can lift that posting and remove the bridge from Elk County’s structurally deficient list.

L.C. Whitford, Co., Inc. of Wellsville, New York has been the contractor on the $1.8 million project. Work has included removal of the old bridge, construction of the new bridge, new approaches, paving, and guide rail updates.
