Clearfield, PA – Construction work for a new bridge on Route 46 (Emporium Road) in McKean County will resume next week as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. 

The bridge spans Havens Run, about three miles southeast of the village of Betula in Norwich Township.

A single-lane traffic restriction controlled by temporary traffic signals went into effect in August 2018. That pattern was scheduled to end in late 2018 but late season flooding, and environmental restrictions temporarily halted construction activity until spring 2019. The bridge work is now expected to be complete in August, which will restore traffic to two lanes.

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may continue to change. 

This bridge is referred to as JV-59 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.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years.
