Update for Potter County Bridge Preservation Work

Potter County – PennDOT issues the following update for three bridges in Potter County for the week of Aug 8. 

  • Route 872 in Coudersport: The bridge spans Mill Creek in Coudersport. Contract work will be completed and temporary traffic signals will be removed, restoring a two-lane traffic pattern.
  • Route 44 in Sweden Township: The bridge spans Mill Creek, near the Route 44/Route 6 intersection.  On Aug. 10 deck repair work will bring a three to seven day detour using Route 3006 (Ice Mine Road) and Route 6. A temporary traffic signal will then be in place. The signal will be operational on Aug. 16 and will enforce an alternating traffic pattern.  Work includes wing wall repairs, beam encasements and deck repairs. Work is expected to take about three months.
  • Route 244 in Genesee Township: The bridge spans Cryder Creek near the New York state line. A temporary signal is being placed today, Aug. 5. The signal will be operational Aug. 9 and will enforce an alternating traffic pattern. Work includes repairs to the deck, structural steel, back-wall and wing-wall. Work is expected to take about three months.

Work on these bridges 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.
