Local bridges affected by weight posting changes
The 1,000 bridges declared “structurally deficient” by the state Department of Transportation include one state-owned bridge in Lycoming County, according to a local PennDOT representative.
“We don’t know when the postings will be done,” said Rick Mason, PennDOT media representative for District 3-0, which includes Lycoming, Sullivan, Tioga, Bradford, Union, Snyder, Northumberland and Montour counties. “We have 11 state-owned and about 60 locally owned bridges involved throughout our district.”
Mason said of the approximately 60 bridges owned by counties or municipalities that will receive a rating change, 17 of them had no any posting before.
State-owned bridges in this region that will be impacted include:
In Lycoming County, at Jersey Mills, in McHenry Township, on Route 414 over Callahan Run, 34 tons single and 40 tons combination.
In Northumberland County, south of Scisly Road in Rush Township on Little Roaring Creek Road over Little Roaring Creek, 33 tons single and 40 tons combination.
