Closure for Sullivan Road Bridge near Bradford Extended to July 20, Short detour remains in place
BRADFORD – PennDOT’s bridge closure on Sullivan Road near Bradford has been extended until July 20. PennDOT closed the bridge in mid-June to make beam repairs and expected to re-open it July 6. That date has now been changed to July 20. The bridge spans Bennett Brook just northwest of Bradford on Route 4011 (Sullivan Road).
A detour using Route 4009 (Interstate Parkway) remains in place. The detour is less than a mile long.
PennDOT McKean County Maintenance is working to repair the steel beams of the bridge.
The decision to close the bridge was the result of a recent inspection. The Bennett Brook Bridge was built in 1940, is 31 feet long and carries an average of 420 vehicles per day.
PennDOT reminds motorists to follow detour signs, obey speed limits and always buckle up.
