PennDOT posting four roads in Bradford County

Four more roads in Bradford County are to be posted with permanent, year-round, 10-ton weight restrictions, according to a press release from PennDOT.

The release continues:

The following state highways will get the weight restrictions along their entire lengths: state Route 1022 (Bridge Street, Ghent Hill Road, Center Valley Road) in Ulster, Sheshequin and Rome townships, from Route 220 to Route 187; state Route 2011 (Shaffers Notch Road) in Terry and Albany townships, from Marsh Road to Wyalusing-New Albany Road; state Route 3012 (Grover Road) in Canton Township, from Route 14 to Route 154; state Route 4024 (Centerville Road) in Ridgebury and Athens townships, from Berwick Turnpike to Wilawana Road.

The postings are being made on the basis of traffic and engineering studies indicating that these highways may be damaged by the use of vehicles that exceed the restriction.

School buses and local-delivery trucks are exempted from the postings.

The postings will take effect as soon as the required signing is erected. A PennDOT maintenance crew will begin placing the road posting signs on Sept. 8.

Rehabilitated Cayuta Street bridge opened to traffic

The Cayuta Street bridge over Cayuta Creek and the Norfolk Southern Railroad tracks in Sayre was reopened to traffic recently, lifting a detour about a week ahead of schedule, according to a press release from PennDOT.

The release continues:

The bridge rehabilitation project included new deck joints, new approaches onto the structure and guiderail upgrades.

An epoxy overlay on the deck surface will be done under traffic, and take place either later this fall or next spring.

This project is one of five bridge rehabilitations in the Northern Tier being done under a $1.6 million contract. Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. is the prime contractor.
