Construction for Route 59 Bridge Complete

Bridge replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership Project

Clearfield, PA – The Route 59 (Mount Alton Ormsby Road) bridge that’s been under construction as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project has opened to traffic. The bridge spans a tributary to Kinzua Creek in Keating Township, about a mile west of the village of Ormsby. Replacing the bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from McKean County’s structurally deficient list.

The bridge reopened to traffic in late August. Once the bridge opened, the detour using Route 646 (Ridge Road) and Route 4003 (Bingham Road) was lifted.

Replacement work was performed by Horizon Construction. The new crossing is longer and wider than the one it replaced and is designed with a 100-year lifespan.

This bridge is referred to as JV-60 out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.

There is now a speed display unit located
on Route 59 before the Ormsby "Y" were the
speed changes to 45 MPH.
