Bridge construction in Pittsfield will begin next week.
Replacement of an 88-year-old structurally-deficient bridge on Route 27 in Pittsfield Township will begin at 7 a.m. next Monday, June 11.
The 10-foot-long bridge over a branch of Garland Run will be replaced with a new concrete box culvert by Warren County PennDOT maintenance staff. Work is expected to be completed by Friday, June 22 at a cost of $73,600.
Two different detours will be posted for two weeks while the bridge is closed.
A car detour will use Sanford Road and Mickle Hill Road and a truck detour will use Routes 36, 62 and 6.
Message boards and signs are in place to alert motorists of the project, PennDOT spokesman Jim Carroll said on Tuesday.
According to PennDOT, the bridge carries an average of 2,267 vehicles a day.
