Construction for a Route 449 (South Brookland Road) bridge in Potter County is scheduled to begin soon as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. The bridge spans Buckseller
Run in Ulysses Township. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Potter County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin the week of July 2 and be complete in mid-July. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 49, Route 44 (North Main Street), US 6 (East 2nd Street), and Route 449 (North Brookland Road).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-86 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.
