a West Main Street (Route 4026) bridge in Potter County is scheduled to begin soon as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Potter County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
The 68-foot bridge spans Fishing Creek in Roulette Township, near the village of Roulette. It dates from 1918 and carries and average
of 360 vehicles each day.
Construction is expected to begin the week of July 31 and be complete in mid-October. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Main Street (T-404), US Route 6, and West Branch Street (T-406).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-88 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.
