Lycoming Creek Road work begins Tuesday

Work will begin Tuesday on a $3.5 million rehabilitation project on the Lycoming Creek Road bridge, located 1 mile north of the intersection with Route 973, according to the state Department of Transportation.

The project includes superstructure replacement, concrete repairs and guiderail upgrades.

The contractor will use daylight flagging operations until the closure of the bridge on April 23. Motorists then will use a detour on Route 973 and Saint Michaels Road.

Work is expected to be completed by mid-November.

Project update for upcoming week

Work is progressing on the Northern Section of the Central Susquehanna Valley Transportation (CSVT) project in Northumberland, Union and Snyder counties as follows:

Winfield Interchange:

Route 15 northbound is reduced to a single lane so the contractor can reconstruct the center portion of the highway. Wide loads over 14 feet are prohibited. The single lane condition is expected to remain in place for most of the construction season. Motorists should be alert for construction vehicles entering and exiting the roadway.

Drainage and earthwork operations will continue during daylight hours only.

Northumberland County:

Earthwork and drainage will continue. A small amount of blasting will be needed to complete remaining excavation. Route 147 traffic is using a temporary crossover to the new northbound bridge over Chillisquaque Creek. There will be intermittent flagging under the bridge at Hidden Paradise Road and Ridge Road.

Construction continues on the bridge spanning Ridge Road and Wooded Run.

River Bridge:

Construction of Piers 1 through 8 and the bridge abutment will continue on the west side of the river. Piers 4 through 7 are complete. Concrete is scheduled to be placed for Pier 1, Pier 2, Pier 8 and the abutment, next week.

Steel girders will be placed on river bridge span 6, weather permitting.

The causeway in the river has been extended north for work on Pier 9.

Construction is ongoing on the abutment on the Northumberland side of the river. Concrete is scheduled to be placed for the abutment wall.

Bridge replacement project to begin in Moreland Township

This week, a PennDOT bridge crew in Lycoming County will begin a replacement project on Liuzza Road in Moreland Township.

The existing concrete slab bridge, which spans Laurel Run near the intersection with Deer Road, was built in 1932 and is classified as functionally obsolete. It will be replaced with a precast concrete box culvert.

A detour will be in place during the project using Sones Road, Route 442 and Deer Road.

Work is expected to be completed in late June, weather permitting.

Lane restriction this week on Route 220 in Woodward Township

The northbound left (passing) lane of Route 220 in Woodward Township will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday and Tuesdaye, between Northway and Quenshukeny roads for soil boring in the median.

Bridge painting starts this week in Lycoming County

A $2.4 million multiple bridge painting contract is set to begin this week in Lycoming County, according to PennDOT. North Star Painting Co. Inc., of Youngstown, Ohio, will begin work on the steel truss bridge on Broad Street in Montoursville, which includes repairs to the structure prior to painting.

Work is also slated for the Memorial Avenue bridge over Lycoming Creek in Williamsport; the Route 287 bridge in Salladasburg and the bridge on Route 220 near Daughertys Run Road. The project is expected to be completed by late August.

There will be single lane conditions under daylight flagging during the project.

Deck replacement on Canoe Camp Creek Road begins

PennDOT crews have begun work on a bridge deck replacement project on the Canoe Camp Creek bridge near Pitts Road in Richmond Township, Tioga County. A detour is in place using East Hill and North Williamson roads and South Main Street in Mansfield while the bridge is closed during the project.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of April.

Unsolicited public-private partnership proposals accepted until April 30
