Temporary Signals to be Placed as Potter County Bridgework Begins

First bridge location is on Route 872 near Coudersport American Legion

Temporary traffic signals will be in place soon along Route 872 in Coudersport as repair work gets underway on the bridge near the American Legion. The temporary signals will be in place this Thursday and will be in flashing mode until April 5. On that day, the signals will be operational and traffic will have to alternate turns across the bridge. Motorists should be prepared for slowed and stopped traffic.

This preservation work is part of a $4.4 million contract covering 21 bridges in Potter, Cameron and Clearfield counties. Work will include deck repairs, steel repairs, rebar installation, painting, and concrete repairs. Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. of State College is the contractor on this job. Work in 2011 will concentrate on the bridges in Potter County. Work on the American Legion bridge will last about 4 months. All work is weather dependent.

Other Potter County bridges under this contract are located on Routes 44, 3007, 6, 4003, 4021, 244 and 1009. PennDOT will issue an update on this bridgework as locations change.
