New Warrensville Road bridge to open Monday

WARRENSVILLE – Traffic on Warrensville Road will be moved onto the new bridge over Mill Creek, near the intersection with Starr Road, on Monday.

Work on the shoulder and guiderails will continue. All work on the $1.34 million project with Nestlerode Contracting should be finished by the end of September.

White Deer Pike

partially open

WATSONTOWN – White Deer Pike was opened to traffic again between Route 15 and Watsontown on Wednesday for the first time since mid-May.

Until work by SEDA-Council of Governments on a rail spur into Great Stream Commons, a Union County-owned 444-acre business park, is completed, the route will be one lane only, with flaggers directing traffic. That work is supposed to be completed by late October.

In that time, there will be four more work days on which the route will need to be closed, said Jeff Stover, executive director of the Joint Rail Authority. Stover said the route most likely will be closed on Wednesday and Thursday so crews can set steel beams on the bridge. Replacing the bridge deck and the final overlay will take one day a piece.

“Every effort will be made to alert the public before the detour is in place again, and we’ll do all we can to limit the duration of the detour,” Stover said. “The route of the detour will be publicized as well.”

The previous detour used Routes 15 and 44, but the Joint Rail Authority says it wants to find a shorter one.

Leidy Township bridge to be replaced

KETTLE CREEK LAKE – The replacement of Beaver Dam Run Bridge on Kettle Creek Road in Leidy Township, Clinton County, will begin on Monday. The 26-foot bridge was built in 1927 and will be replaced with a box culvert, a $282,000 project contracted to LTT Trucking.

A detour will go into effect on Sept. 3 through Sept. 17. The official detour uses Route 144 and Route 120.

Any work to be done after Sept. 17 will be done with open traffic, with restrictions possible. Work is scheduled to end in late September.

Bridge replacement

on Milan Road begins

MILAN – A $3.7 million project to replace a bridge over Bucks Creek on Milan Road a quarter-mile east of Sunnyside Road, in Smithfield and Ulster townships in Bradford County, began on Wednesday.

Traffic will be detoured onto Laurel Hill Road as Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. works on the project along a 3-mile stretch, for about 40 days.

Most of the work zone will have its traffic controlled by flaggers.

Work is expected to be finished by November, except for “final seeding,” which will take place next spring.

Weight restrictions to lift in Bradford County

WYSOX – Thanks to upgrades by gas companies, weight restrictions will be removed on parts of Keene Summit Road and Marshview Road.

On Keene Summit Road, 10-ton restrictions will be removed from the intersection with Route 6 to the intersection with Mercur Hill Road.

On Marshview Road, the 10-ton restriction will be removed from the intersection with North Road to the intersection with Liberty Corners Road.
