East-end Bridgework on Route 120 Starts Tuesday in Emporium

Temporary signal will control traffic

Clearfield – With Route 120 bridgework on the west end of Emporium nearing completion, work can begin on the Route 120 east end bridge. On Tuesday, May 24, work will get underway on the steel truss bridge located on Route 120 near the intersection with Route 155. A temporary signal will enforce an alternating traffic pattern as work takes place on the bridge.

All traffic traveling Route 155 south into Emporium, will now be required to stop at the intersection with Route 120, prior to traveling through the signalized work zone.

Work on the bridge will include construction of a new deck, new approach slabs, new sidewalks and parapet repair. Swank Associated Companies, Inc. is the contractor on this $2.6 million rehabilitation project.

PennDOT expects the temporary signal to be in effect into September of this year. All work is weather dependent. Drivers are reminded to obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.
