A $2,409,477 bridge construction project on Route 220 (German Street) in Dushore Borough, Sullivan County, is set to start on Monday.
The existing single-span concrete bridge over Little Loyalsock Creek, near the intersection with Water Street, was built in 1925 and is structurally deficient.
The project includes replacing the old bridge with a new concrete structure on the existing alignment, drainage improvements, and concrete curb and sidewalk.
The work also includes roadway base repairs and pavement resurfacing (mill and overlay) of Route 220 from the Route 87 intersection south of the borough to the Main Street intersection at the traffic signal, base repairs and pavement resurfacing (mill and overlay) of Route 87 (East Main, Mill and Carpenter streets) from the Route 220 intersection to just west of the Dushore Borough/Cherry Township line, and membrane waterproofing of the existing bridge deck on Route 87 (East Main Street) over Little Loyalsock Creek.
During construction of the new bridge, vehicular traffic will be detoured along the following:
Route 220 truck traffic: Old Bernice Road, Route 487 and Route 87;
Detours will start Monday and end Sept. 18.
All work is scheduled to be completed by late November.
Bridge work on
Route 409 in Bradford County begins Monday
A PennDOT bridge crew in Bradford County will begin a bridge replacement project on Route 409 in Wyalusing Township on Monday.
The existing 21-foot-long concrete slab bridge over Billings Creek, near the intersection of Brinks Billings Creek Road, was built in 1940 and is structurally deficient.
The bridge will be replaced on its existing alignment with a new concrete box culvert. The bridge crew will construct a temporary diversion channel, remove the old bridge, prepare the site for the new box culvert, then reconstruct roadway approaches and perform all other finishing work on the project.
A detour will use Route 706 and Route 6.
The new bridge should be open in mid-August.
The placement of an epoxy overlay on the Route 522 truss bridge over Penns Creek just north of Selinsgrove in Snyder County will begin Monday. It originally had been set for last week.
When the work begins, the same detour that was used last year during the bridge construction will be implemented again. Northbound traffic will be detoured on Route 522, Market Street, Route 35, Routes 11-15 northbound.
The local-traffic detour route will be Airport Road, Mill Road, Route 204 and Route 522.
Prime contractor Susquehanna Supply Co. completed the majority of the work last year, but due to project delays the epoxy overlay had to be pushed back until this year.
Weather permitting, the work will take about two weeks.
Route 154 bridge replacement in Sullivan County starts Tuesday
A PennDOT crew in Sullivan County will begin a bridge replacement project on Route 154 in Elkland Township this week.
The existing 28-foot-long bridge, built in 1932, carries Route 154 over Blackwater Run, immediately south of the intersection of Estella Spur Road in Estella.
The PennDOT crew will remove and replace the bridge on the existing alignment. Once a new box culvert is in place, back-filling, guiderail and paving of the roadway approaches will be completed.
A detour will go into effect on Tuesday for Route 154. It will use Route 4001 (Elk Creek Road) and Route 87 and will be in place until late August when the new bridge is opened.
A detour also will go into effect on Tuesday, for Route 4014 (Estella Spur Road), using Route 4011 (Millview Mountain Road) and Route 4009. The detour will be in place until late August.
