Project Overview

The Mansfield PennDOT Project involves roadway resurfacing (milling and overlay) of Route 6 (Wellsboro Street) and Route 2005 (Business 15/Main Street) in Mansfield Borough and Richmond Township, Tioga County. The project will maintain the underlying pavement structure and address surface deterioration of the existing roadway surface. The full depth reconstruction of the roadways and upgrades to the signalized intersection of Route 6 and Route 2005 has been postponed for a future planned project.

The project limits on Route 6, Section 179 extend from the Tioga River Bridge to Swan Street. The project limits on Route 2005, Section 026 (Business 15/Main Street) extend from the Southern Mansfield Levee to Route 15 Exit 183, including the interchange ramps. Construction activities include milling and overlay of the existing pavement, minor drainage improvements, signing, pavement markings, guide rail replacement and ADA accommodations at the intersections (where appropriate).

The project also involves bridge preservation of Route 6, Section 135 over Tioga River in Mansfield Borough. Construction activities include placing an epoxy overlay, replacing the seals at the piers and minor bridge deck/barrier repairs.

Construction of the project is anticipated to begin in 2024 and be completed in approximately two years. Construction will occur in stages, with traffic being maintained on the existing roadways with short-term lane closures. The traffic lanes will be restored during non-working hours. Detours along Borough owned streets are not being considered for this project. Temporary traffic shifts and night-time lane closures may be implemented to minimize construction impacts to local businesses and the traveling public. A directional detour will be in place for the Route 6 bridge preservation activities, see Detour Information below for additional information.

Detour Information

The Route 6 bridge preservation will involve a directional detour of Route 6 westbound traffic.  Westbound traffic will divert from Route 6, making a left turn to Route 2005 (S. Main Street), before accessing Route 15 North at the Covington/Canoe Camp interchange (Exit 179) and exiting at the Mansfield/Wellsboro interchange (Exit 182). Eastbound traffic will be maintained through the project area during construction. The detour will be scheduled during the summer months when school is not in session. Refer to the Route 6 WB Detour Plan under Resources for additional information.


Pedestrian accommodations along the bridge sidewalk will be maintained during construction. Bicycle traffic along Route 6 (PA Bike Route Y) will be maintained between the bridge closure points by requiring all cyclists to dismount and walk along the sidewalk through the construction area. The closure points for bicyclists are anticipated to begin at the intersection of Railroad St/Besanceney Drive and end at Route 1001 (Lambs Creek Road) where crosswalks are currently present.
