FERGUSON TOWNSHIP – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is reminding area drivers that work to replace a bridge in Clearfield County is set to begin Wednesday, Aug. 11.
The bridge spans Campbell Run on Route 3016 (Marron Road) between Route 729 and Route 3005 (Irvona Road) in Ferguson Township.
The existing bridge, which dates from 1934, will be replaced by a new box culvert. An average of almost 400 vehicles crosses the structure each day.
Beginning Wednesday, the bridge will be closed and a detour using Route 729, Route 3022 (Ansonville Road), and Route 3005 (Irvona Road) will be in place.
This detour will be used for the duration of the project, which is expected to finish by the end of August.
PennDOT Clearfield County Maintenance will perform excavation, demolition of the existing bridge, placement of the new box culvert, and back-fill.
A contractor will pave the roadway approaches and install guiderail. An update will be issued prior to reopening the bridge. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
PennDOT reminds drivers to use caution in work zones, follow official detour signs, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.
