Route 146 Bridge Job with Detour Starts Monday in McKean County

Norwich Township, PA – On Monday, August 7, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will begin replacement work on a Route 146 bridge in Norwich Township.

The bridge spans Potato Creek, about a mile south of the village of Colegrove. The existing single-lane bridge is weight-limit posted for 23-tons for single vehicle and 27-tons for combination vehicles. It carries an average of more than 200 vehicles each day. Replacing the bridge will eliminate the weight postings and remove it from McKean County’s structurally deficient list.

Starting Monday, the bridge will be closed and an official detour using Routes 146, 46, and 6 will be in place. Drivers familiar with the area may choose to use alternate routes. The detour will be in place through the completion of the project.

Project work will include replacement of the old bridge with a two-lane pre-stressed concrete bridge, approach paving, guide-rail upgrades, pavement markings, and miscellaneous items.

All work is weather and schedule dependent. Rylind Construction Company, Inc. of Lewisberry, PA is the contractor on this $1.2 million project. PennDOT expects the bridge to be complete and open to traffic in early December.

Drivers are reminded to follow posted detour signs, move through work zones with caution, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
