Railroad Work to Close Route 46 in Bradford Starting November 13


Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that B&P Railroad will close Route 46 in the City of Bradford on Monday, November 13, to improve one of their railroad crossings.

While this work occurs, traffic will be detoured onto Route 4005 (Main Street) and follow Route 346, and Route 219 back to Main Street. PennDOT urges drivers to anticipate delays and to build extra time into their travel schedules while this work takes place.

PennDOT anticipates this detour remaining in place through Friday, November 17, but all work is weather dependent.

PennDOT reminds motorists to use caution near the work zone, remain alert for railroad operators and equipment, approach railroad crossings carefully, and "always expect a train."

Motorists are encouraged to "Know Before They Go" by checking conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following local alerts on X.
