Box Culvert Work on Collins Hill Road Rescheduled to Start Aug. 15

Coudersport – Crews from PennDOT Potter County Maintenance will begin work Aug. 15 to install a new box culvert along Route 1015 (Collins Hill Road). The box culvert will replace the existing Bingham Center Bridge, in Bingham Township. This work was rescheduled from its original June start date. Work will begin at 6 a.m. Aug 15 and last through 5 p.m. Aug. 22.

A detour will be in place for the length of the project. The detour will make use of Route 1013 (Bingham Center Road) and Route 1011(Hickox Ulysses Road). The detour will be in effect for the entire weeklong project.

The Bingham Center Bridge carries an average of 94 vehicles per day. The bridge was built in 1937. The installation of the box culvert will eliminate the current 8-ton posting on the bridge.

PennDOT advises drivers to obey posted speed limits and follow detour signs. For more information on roadway construction and maintenance operations, visit PennDOT’s website at
