Lewis Run Bridge Job Underway Next Week

BRADFORD – Work to replace a structurally deficient bridge in Lewis Run will get underway next week. The bridge spans Lewis Run on Route 4001 (Lafayette Avenue/Big Shanty Road) in the borough of Lewis Run. Replacing the bridge with a new concrete arch structure will shorten the list of structurally deficient bridges in McKean County by one.

Work that is scheduled to start Monday, May 14 includes waterline relocation, storm sewer and inlet placements, and roadwork and drainage improvements on Big Shanty Road. This work will be done with little or no traffic impacts.

Once initial work is complete, a detour will be in effect so that the current bridge can be removed and the new one built. The detour is expected to begin on June 11 and last through late August. The detour route will use Route 4001, Route 59, and Route 219. PennDOT will issue an updated release before the detour goes into effect.

All work is weather and schedule dependent. L.C. Whitford of Wellsville, New York is the contractor on this $1.3 million project. Work is scheduled to be finished in late September.
