Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is continuing work to replace two bridges on Interstate 80 in Clearfield County.
The bridges span Shiloh Road (Route 1012), just east of mile marker 125 in Bradford Township. The bridges are being replaced in a half-width configuration.
Since March 18, there have been temporary alternating lane closures eastbound and westbound during daylight hours in the work zone, with no width restrictions.
Starting May 20, Shiloh Road (SR 1012) will be closed temporarily to erect bridge beams for the bridge reconstruction. The Shiloh Road closure is currently expected to last through May 31. The official detour during this closure will use Shiloh Road (SR 1012), Bigler Cutoff Road (SR 2030), and Route 322. Drivers familiar with the area may choose alternate routes.
Later this summer, traffic on I-80 will be switched to the travel lanes and work will begin on replacing the passing lane sides of the bridges. PennDOT will issue an update prior to that change.
Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College, PA is the contractor for this $6 million project. All work is weather and schedule dependent. Work is expected to be complete by November, with the final overlay set for spring 2020.
Motorists should be alert for message boards and advance signing that notifies them of lane restrictions and the potential for slowed traffic. PennDOT reminds drivers to use caution in all work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.
