Latest On Pennsy Bridge Detour


The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is advising drivers that the Pennsy Bridge on Route 219 in Ridgway, Elk County remains closed. The bridge was closed Thursday, June 18 due to a construction-related incident. 

PennDOT continues to review detours and vehicle movement on those detours. The following detours remain in effect:

Northbound traffic will continue to follow the detour that was being used for the Pennsy Bridge project. That detour is: Route 219 truck bypass at the top of Boot Jack Mountain, to Route 120 west to Route 1014 (Osterhout Street), then returning to Route 219 north. Only northbound traffic will be able to access and use Route 1014 (Osterhout Street). 

Southbound truck traffic will be required to follow a detour beginning in Johnsonburg. Southbound trucks are to exit Route 219 in Johnsonburg and follow Route 255 south through the city of St Marys. Trucks will then follow Route 948 north through the village of Kersey and then intersect with Route 219 south near the village of Brandy Camp. 

Southbound passenger vehicles may continue to use Route 219 south from Johnsonburg into Ridgway. With temporary signals in place, PennDOT is allowing two-way passenger vehicle traffic on Osterhout Street (Route 1014). This means that southbound drivers can use Route 219 and Osterhout Street to get to their Ridgway area homes or other local destinations in and around Ridgway. 

Route 219 northbound (North Broad Street) between Main Street and Erie Street in Ridgway will be open to local traffic only. No through traffic will be permitted on this section of Route 219.

Drug Deaths On The Rise In Elk County
