PennDOT Announces Port Royal Bridge Reopening


Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that it reopened a bridge spanning the Norfolk Southern Railroad along Route 75 in Port Royal Borough and lifted the detour it implemented in the spring. This project improved ride quality across the structure and enhanced safety for motorists by improving sight distance.

PennDOT thanks the community for the patience it demonstrated during this process.

Overall work on this $4 million project involved partial removal of the existing structure, building its replacement, approach paving, and drainage improvements. Also included were water and sewer line replacements, sidewalk and guide rail replacement, pavement markings, and miscellaneous construction.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways 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.
