Reconstruction for a Route 53 (Morrisdale Allport Highway) bridge in Clearfield County, is scheduled to begin soon as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. The bridge spans Emigh Run near the village of Morrisdale in Morris Township.  

Construction is expected to begin the week of August 6 and be complete in late August. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 53 (Morrisdale Allport Highway), I-80 (Z. H. Confair Memorial Highway), Route 970 (Shawville Highway) and U.S. Route 322 (Philipsburg Bigler Highway). The 24-foot bridge dates from 1958 and carries an average of more than 5,400 vehicles each day. 

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change. 
This bridge is referred to as JV-36 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
