Box Culvert Work Starts Later this Month on Route 1015 (Collins Hill Road)

POTTER CO.Crews from PennDOT Potter County Maintenance will begin work later this month to install a new box culvert along Route 1015 (Collins Hill Road). The box culvert will replace the existing Bingham Center Bridge.

Work is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. June 23 on the bridge in Bingham Township, and last through July 1.

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 two-week 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 eight-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 www.dot.state.pa.us.
