Work to start soon on Route 6 Bridge McKean County

Replacement Work Begins Next Week for Route 6 Bridge in McKean County

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will begin work next week to replace a Route 6 bridge in Hamlin Township, McKean County. Replacing the bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from McKean County’s structurally deficient list.

The bridge spans Bloomster Hollow near the village of Kasson, about 6 miles west of Smethport. The existing 33-foot bridge dates from 1921 and carries an average of almost 2,700 vehicles each day.

Temporary traffic signals will be placed on Tuesday, May 30. The signals will enforce an alternating traffic pattern while the current concrete bridge is replaced with a composite spread box beam bridge. Work will take place in a half-width configuration.

Overall project work will include removal of the old bridge, construction of the new bridge, roadway reconstruction, drainage upgrades, and guide rail replacement. PennDOT expects the new bridge to be fully open to traffic this fall. A final epoxy wearing surface will be applied to the bridge in 2018.

All work is weather and schedule dependent. Palo Construction, Inc. of Clarion, PA is the contractor on this $1.6 million project. Drivers are reminded to move through work zones with caution, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

For more information on projects occurring or being bid this year, those made possible by or accelerated by the state transportation funding plan (Act 89), or those on the department’s Four and Twelve Year Plans, visit www.projects.penndot.gov.

I thought that bridge was repaired last year? That's 3 bridges (delays) between Mt. Jewett and Smethport. Must be union guys doing the jobs.
