PennDOT Posts Weight Restriction On Route 555 Bridge In Elk County


Effective at 3pm today, PennDOT has posted weight limits on a Route 555 bridge in Elk County. The bridge spans Kersey Run in the village of Weedville. The bridge is now posted for 10 tons and a one-lane traffic pattern is in place, enforced by a self-regulating stop sign. Vehicles exceeding the 10-ton weight limit will need to use alternate routes.


The decision to restrict the bridge was the result of a recent inspection. The Weedville Bridge was built in 1930, is 74 feet long, and carries an average of almost 1,700 vehicles daily. The weight limit restriction will be removed or improved as soon as repairs can be made. PennDOT expects to complete those repairs before mid-August.


Over the past several years, PennDOT has worked continually to repair or replace structurally deficient bridges but has also added or increased weight restrictions to structurally deficient bridges when necessary. Reducing the weight traveling on these bridges will slow their deterioration and preserve safety.


To learn more about bridge weight restrictions and PennDOT’s bridge-inspection program, visit the PennDOT homepage at www.dot.state.pa.us and click on “Bridge Information.”

Smoke Testing To Continue In The City Of St. Marys



Smoke testing identifies locations where there are defects or improper connection into the sewer system, and is the industry standard and an efficient, cost effective way to locate and identify leaks and the source of storm water infiltration problems in the sanitary sewer system. 


Testing is important because each year millions of gallons of excess water infiltrates sanitary sewers and can overload the system, pump stations and treatment plant.  The sanitary sewer system is designed for wastewater only from homes and businesses to flow to the St. Marys treatment plant.  The storm water drainage system is a separate network of pipes channeling storm water runoff into creeks and waterways.  The infiltration of storm water in any amount into the sanitary sewer system can cause and contribute to the overflow of untreated wastewater during storm events and potentially result in environmental and property damage.


Testing will continue, July 25th - 30th, in the following locations.


Erie Ave                        3 to 695 Washington Rd  

Bank St                         Prince Alley

Diamond St                   Tremont St

Jefferson St                   Grant St

Lawrence St                   Madison St

Columbus St                  LaFayette St

Atlantic St                      110 to 618 N St. Marys St

Fox Rd                          Rightmeyer St

N Fourth St                    Ida St

Mark St                         Evers Ave

Dippold Ave                   Russ Ln

Penn Rd                        Edward Rd

Eben Rd                        Dove Rd

Reserve Rd                    Armory Rd

Terrace Rd                     E Condot Rd

Brewery Run Ln              Lombardo Pl

Houston Rd                    Lynch Rd

Parkway Rd                   Bennett Rd

Gay Rd                          Haggerty Rd

Erich Rd                         Nicholas Rd

Hill Rd


The Crystal Fire Department will have Fire Police in the area of the testing in an effort to prevent unnecessary calls to 9-1-1. Should you have any questions please contact Pipe Eye Sewer Systems at (814) 596-7340 or the City of St. Marys at (814) 781-1718.

American Pickers Want To Pick Cameron County!



 “American Pickers” on History Channel is a program which explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ The high profile show follows two of the most skilled pickers in the business ‘Mike Wolfe’ and ‘Frank Fritz’ as they embark on an epic road trip across the US.   In August the show will feature sites in Pennsylvania. Recently a director contacted the Cameron County Chamber of Commerce office hoping to find some residents willing to be “picked”.  


The show offers a fascinating insight into what it’s like to be the men on the ground who are on the frontlines of the antique industry. The show follows the pickers in their truck as they go on a mission in search of America’s most fascinating and valuable antiques - treasures that have been long forgotten in junkyards and barns across the country. The team tracks down unique and interesting items from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia.


The series follows the highs and lows of the trade as our team gets their hands dirty in the search of weird and wonderful hidden treasures. The show examines how determination and amazing instincts drive the pickers to salvage the good junk from the bad junk. On the adventure our team meets fascinating characters along the way each with a story to tell about the history of their collection and their own lives. Mike and Frank bring the past to life and recycle America as they go. On the way, we explore how our pickers strike the ultimate deal and discover just what it takes to renovate and re-sell a newly found antique in a competitive market.


According to the producer, they will not visit auctions, flea markets, antique malls or museums.  Items they are NOT looking for include fine furniture, agricultural or farming items, Depression glass, appliances or pottery.  If you are interested in hosting the American Pickers send pictures of items to smensah@cineflix.com.
