Construction for a Route 44 bridge near the village of Clara in Potter County is scheduled to begin as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Potter County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
The bridge spans Clara Creek and carries an average of almost 1,500 vehicles each day. Construction is expected to begin during the week of June 12 and be complete in early November. During this time, an alternating traffic pattern will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-82 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.
