Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced it will reopen both lanes of the Flemington Bridge along Route 150 near Lock Haven by close of business on Wednesday, November 22. Work to preserve this bridge, which spans Bald Eagle Creek in Bald Eagle Township, started in June and will improve the overall condition rating of the structure from fair to good.
While PennDOT will reopen both lanes to traffic on Wednesday, the sidewalks are still under construction and not expected to be accessible by pedestrian traffic until mid-December. As such, drivers should anticipate periods of intermittent flagging while the contractor works to complete the sidewalks.
Two other structures saw work under this contract. One is a Route 150 bridge spanning Chatham Run in Dunnstable Township. The other is a Route 220 bridge spanning Route 2006 and Fishing Creek in Lamar Township. Work on those bridges is complete.
HRI, Inc. of State College, PA, is the contractor for this $3.5 million job.
