HUSTON TOWNSHIP – A construction project on Route 255 (Bennetts Valley Highway) in Huston Township, Clearfield County, is scheduled to begin soon as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
The project is located over Mine Cave Lane, near the village of Hollywood and will entail removal of a structure and reconstruction of the roadway over a mine site.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of Sept. 3 and be complete in early October. During this time, an alternating traffic pattern will be controlled by temporary traffic signals. This project is referred to as JV-42.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
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.
The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impacts on motorists.
