Bridges Under New, Added Weight Restrictions

Bridges on Dorothy Lane, Sullivan Road, Columbia Hill Road, Barnum Road and Kushequa Avenue are among those in McKean County that will be posted with new or lowered weight restrictions.

Last week, PennDOT secretary Barry Schoch said 1,000 structurally deficient bridges across the state had been authorized for new or added weight restrictions in order to slow down deterioration and ensure safety.

He said the move is necessary because the state Legislature has not acted on transportation funding. Lawmakers in both the House and Senate say that is one of their priorities for the fall session.
