A Route 219 (Mahaffey Grampian Highway) bridge in Greenwood Township, Clearfield County is complete and open to traffic. Replacement of the bridge allows PennDOT to remove it from Clearfield County’s “poor” bridge list.
The bridge, which spans Poplar Run near the village of Bells Landing has been under construction as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project,
The bridge reopened to traffic on Wednesday, November 15. Replacement work was performed by Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College, PA.
The new crossing is longer and wider than the one it replaced and is designed with a 100-year lifespan.
This bridge is referred to as JV-39 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
