Route 477 bridge project starts Monday
LOGANTON — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is alerting motorists that a bridge replacement project along Route 477 in Clinton County will start Monday, April 5. The project will replace a bridge spanning Fishing Creek in Loganton Borough.
Work on this project will be done in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the job site and relevant training.
Starting Monday, temporary traffic signals will enforce an alternating traffic pattern that will see traffic take turns crossing the bridge via the open lane. This signal will be operational for the duration of the project.
The bridge was built in 1938, is 50-feet long carries an average of more than 950 vehicles daily.
The overall project will consist of replacing the existing bridge, guide rail installation, pavement marking and miscellaneous construction. PennDOT expects to complete the project in mid-November. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
