|Construction work has resumed on the SR 403 Clymer Bridge replacement project in Indiana County |
Indiana – PennDOT Engineering District 10 is advising motorists that construction work has resumed on the State Route (SR) 403 Clymer Bridge replacement project. The project consists of two structure replacements, one over Dixon Run and the other over Two Lick Creek. The structures are located between Sherman and Gerry Streets in Clymer Borough, Indiana County.
Project construction will be performed using a temporary traffic signal for the Dixon Run Bridge project in order to maintain one lane of alternating traffic. The traffic signal is expected to be installed Wednesday, March 9. For the Two Lick Creek Bridge, a temporary structure will be installed to maintain two travel lanes during construction. The temporary bridge should be installed the end of March.
During the time of construction, there is an 11’ width restriction in effect. A suggested alternative uses SR 403 to SR 119 to SR 286.
Motorists are advised to anticipate traffic delays and be prepared to stop. Motorists are also asked to slow down and exercise caution when traveling through work zones. As the need applies, flag crews will direct traffic while work is being performed.
This is a $5.2 million project with work being completed by Joseph B. Fay Co. of Russelton, Allegheny County. Construction began in 2010; completion is anticipated for mid-November 2011.
