Bridge replacement

GALETON — A PennDOT maintenance crew has begun to replace a bridge in Pike Township, Potter County, near Sunderlinville. The project requires Phoenix Run Road to be closed.

The deteriorated bridge is being replaced with a precast box culvert. Although area drivers can use local roads around the closure, PennDOT’s official detour is 42 miles long.

Biomass planning continues

SMETHPORT – A new technology may be employed to make the biomass heating and power project in Smethport Borough more efficient.

During a recent meeting with borough leaders, consultants from First Renewable Energy recommended a new closed-circuit steam cycle system that is cleaner and more efficient than other models under consideration.

The Smethport Woody Biomass Project is a community-scale project using local wood resources. The borough is partnering with Penn State University, the Pa. Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources and the U.S. Forest Service.
