Bridge Replacement to start July 27 in McKean County; (West Eldred Road) in Eldred Township

Detour will be in place July 27 through August 7



Bradford, PA – A bridge replacement job is scheduled July 27 through August 7 in McKean County, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. A state-owned bridge on Township Road 405 (West Eldred Road) in Eldred Township will be replaced with a new concrete box culvert. Replacing the bridge will remove it from McKean County’s structurally deficient list.

The work is expected to last through August 7 and an official detour will be in place for the length of the project. The detour will direct drivers to use Routes 446 and 346.

Starting July 27, crews will begin working to remove the existing bridge, excavate the site, set the new box culvert, and pave the roadway. The bridge spans Beers Hollow Run about four miles north of the village of Coryville. Originally built in 1941, the current 14-foot bridge carries an average of more than 1,000 vehicles daily.

Employees of PennDOT McKean County Maintenance will perform excavation and removal of the existing bridge. Setting of the new box culvert and roadway paving will be done by an outside contractor.

Should work progress allow, PennDOT will re-open the roadway and bridge prior to the August 7 completion date. PennDOT reminds drivers to follow detour signs, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
