penndotA  Rapid Bridge Replacement Project will affect traffic in Tioga County beginning the week of Monday, June 13th.

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the bridge (JV 128) will be constructed on East Main Street (SR 49) over California Brook in Westfield Township. The work is scheduled to start on Monday, June 13th, and is expected to be finished by the beginning of November.

While the project is underway, drivers should expect traffic to be reduced to a single lane in either direction. The traffic will be controlled with temporary traffic signals. On average, the bridge carries 3,832 vehicles daily.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a Public-Private Partnership (P3) between Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP) and PennDOT. For a period of 25 years, PWKP is doing the replacement, maintenance, financing, and designing of the bridge. Bridges will be replaced faster while saving money, according to PennDOT.
