Construction for a Route 44 bridge near the village of Sharon Center in Potter County is scheduled to begin soon 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 Wildcat Creek and carries an average of almost 2,400 vehicles each day. Construction is expected to begin during the week of May 29 and be complete in late August. 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-83 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.
