New Weight Limit on Barnum Road Bridge

The bridge spanning Meeks Run on Barnum Road in Eldred Township will be posted with a new weight limit on Friday.

The bridge, which is about three miles north of the borough of Eldred, will be posted for 32 tons for single vehicles and 40 tons for combination vehicles.

This is one of about 1,000 bridges across the state getting new weight restrictions because they are structurally deficient. This bridge, which was built in 1938, carries an average of more than 2,100 vehicles each day, according to PennDOT.
