Bridge near Bradford Closed

Short detour in place; repairs begin next week

BRADFORD – PennDOT closed a bridge near Bradford today and a short detour is in place. The bridge spans Bennett Brook just northwest of Bradford on Route 4011 (Sullivan Road). The detour uses Route 4009 (Interstate Parkway) and is less than a mile long.

On Monday, June 25, PennDOT McKean County Maintenance will begin work to repair the steel beams of the bridge. Repairs are expected to be finished July 6, weather permitting.

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.
