Clearfield County, PA – A construction project on Route 255 (Bennetts Valley Highway) in Huston Township, Clearfield County has been postponed. It was scheduled to start earlier this week but had to be put off because of the weather. The bridge over Mine Cave Lane will be replaced later this year, but PennDOT hasn’t said exactly when.

It was previously scheduled to begin during the week of March 19. The project is located over Mine Cave Lane, near the village of Hollywood and will entail removal of a structure and reconstruction of the roadway over a mine site. This project is referred to as JV-42.

An update on the start of construction will be released in the near future.

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impacts on motorists.
