PennDOT Announces Bridge Preservation Project near Shinglehouse Underway

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announces bridge preservation project along Route 4017 (Shay Town Road) on a bridge that spans Bell Run, approximately five miles south of Shinglehouse in Sharon Township, Potter County. This work will improve safety and ride quality for motorists traveling over the bridge and improve the overall condition of the bridge from "poor" to "good".

The bridge will be closed to traffic beginning April 8, 2024, as crews perform preservation work. A detour will be in place utilizing Route 1009 (Bell Run Road) and Route 44. This project is expected to last two to three months. All work is weather dependent.

This ongoing bridge preservation effort in Potter County also included work on a bridge along Route 219 that was completed last year, and includes future work on another Route 219 bridge to be completed later this year. PennDOT will issue an advisory as upcoming work is scheduled.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following local alerts on X.
