Southwest Twp. bridge closed

A Southwest Township bridge will be closed for replacement for about a month and a half.

The work started Monday on the Tidioute Enterprise Road, located between Pineville Road and Colorado Road “is closed to through traffic.”

PennDOT said on Monday that “a detour is posted using Neiltown Road, Route 227 and Route 27.”

“The work is expected to be completed by August 30, 2019, weather permitting.”

The existing bridge was built in 1917 and is classified as in poor condition, according to PennDOT.

Roughly 250 vehicles use the bridge daily.

PennDOT said earlier this month that work will be completed by a PennDOT Department Force bridge crew.
