The McGees Mill Road (Route 3009) bridge in Brady Township, Clearfield County is open to traffic. The bridge spans the east branch of Mahoning Creek about two miles southeast of the village of Troutville. The bridge has been under construction as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. Replacement of the bridge allows PennDOT to remove it from Clearfield County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
The bridge reopened to traffic on Friday, October 21; however, until a polyester polymer concrete (PPC) overlay is applied to the bridge deck, motorists may notice a slight bump as the drive across the bridge.
The polyester material can only be applied when temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees and after the bridge concrete has cured for at least 30 days. Flaggers will assist in guiding alternating bi-directional traffic when the PPC overlay is applied in mid-2017.
This bridge is referred to as JV-45 and is one of 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. Replacement work for this bridge was performed by Walsh Construction II.
