Temporary Signals Set for Emporium Bridge Work

Clearfield – Temporary signals are now in place for repair work on a bridge along Route 3001(Broad Street) in Emporium. The signals have been placed in advance of the repair work. The signals will remain covered until crews are mobilized for the repair work. PennDOT expects that work to happen later this spring. The bridge spans the Driftwood Branch of the Sinnemahoning, just south of Emporium.

During the repair work, the signals will regulate traffic, allowing for an alternating, traffic pattern across the bridge. Bridgework will include rocker bearing repair and some painting. This work is part of a $4.4 million bridge preservation contract for 21 bridges in three counties (9 in Potter County, 1 in Cameron County and 11 in Clearfield County).  Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. of State College is the contractor for this work.

PennDOT advises drivers to obey posted speed limits and use caution in all construction zones. For more information on roadway construction and maintenance operations, visit PennDOT’s website at www.dot.state.pa.us.
