Wilcox bridge repair to impact Route 219 traffic

Wilcox –Work to repair a bridge on Route 219 about a mile north of Wilcox will get under way Tuesday, July 1. The bridge spans Rocky Run in Jones Township, Elk County.

In the work area, lanes will be shifted, making use of the northbound lane and northbound shoulder in order to allow sufficient room for the repair crew. Concrete barrier will be in place and two 12-foot lanes will keep two-way traffic moving through the work zone. The speed limit in the area will be temporarily reduced from 55 miles per hour to 45 miles per hour.

Work on the Route 219 bridge will include the removal of damaged sections of the bridge and parapet. The bridge sections will be repaired and parapet and guide rail will be replaced.

The repairs to the bridge are necessary due to damage caused by a truck crash in December of 2013. The hauler is responsible for the cost of repairs.

The overall project is expected to be complete by early September, with A.L. Blades of Hornell, New York serving as contractor on the job.
