Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that work on a Route 4001 (Kettle Creek Road) bridge in Leidy Township, Clinton County, will start on Friday, November 17. Work on this bridge, which spans Kettle Creek near the Alvin R. Bush Dam, will enhance motorists' safety and improve the structure's overall condition rating from poor to good.
Flaggers in the roadway will provide traffic control while the contractor places concrete barriers along the northbound and southbound sides of the road. Upon completion, the contractor will keep both lanes open to traffic, but there will be a 10-foot width restriction for northbound and southbound traffic for the duration of the work. PennDOT urges drivers to exercise caution in this and all work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
Overall work includes improvements to the bridge barrier wall, guide rail installation, and pavement marking. PennDOT anticipates completion of this work by Saturday, November 18, but all work is weather dependent. Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College, PA, is the contractor on this project.
