Work to Start on Two Elk County Bridges
The bridge spans Rocky Run in Jones Township.
In the work area, lanes will be shifted, making use of the northbound lane and northbound shoulder in order to allow sufficient room for the repair crew. A concrete barrier will be in place and two 12-foot lanes will keep two-way traffic moving through the work zone. The speed limit in the area will be temporarily reduced from 55 miles per hour to 45 miles per hour.
The repairs to the bridge are necessary due to damage caused by a truck crash in December of 2013. The hauler is responsible for the cost of repairs.
The work should be finished by early September.
A detour will start July 7 as crews work to replace the Johnsonburg Water Dam Bridge. While the bridge is closed the detour will use Silver Creek Road, Route 219 and Montmorenci Road.
Work is expected to be finished July 12.
