Route 6 Bridge Replacement Project to Start Monday

Work to replace a bridge spanning Kane Creek is scheduled to start Monday, April 22, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.The bridge is located on Route 6 approximately a mile east of Mount Jewett in Hamlin Township, McKean County. Replacing it will allow PennDOT to remove the structure from McKean County’s list of bridges in poor condition.
On Monday, crews will begin roadway widening and drainage installation. This work will take place during daylight hours. Flaggers in the roadway will enforce an alternating traffic pattern.

When initial work is complete, a permanent lane shift and temporary barrier will be installed.The bridge is being replaced using half-width phasing and traffic flow on Route 6 will be maintained in both directions.

Once roadway widening and drainage installation are complete, access to Route 6 will be restricted from Route 3015 (Lower Lindholm Road). Lower Lindholm will be closed at the intersection with Route 6, and a detour will be in effect. The detour will follow Route 3011 (Lindholm Road) for two miles back to Route 6.The detour is expected to be implemented Monday, May 6.

Overall project work will include replacement of the bridge, approach paving, guiderail installation, pavement markings, and miscellaneous construction.

The existing bridge is 15-feet long, was built in 1924and is traveled by more than2,100 vehicles daily. PennDOT expects the new bridge to be open to traffic by mid-September.
Bob Cummins Construction Co. of Bradford is the contractor for this $1.2 million job.

PennDOT reminds drivers to use caution in and around work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
