SPRING MILLS – The new bridge on Route 45 in Spring Mills will open to traffic on Jan. 20.
Once the new bridge is open, the local detour on Firehall Road will be lifted. The bridge replacement project has been underway since mid-June 2008, with a local detour in place. Overall work has included structure replacement, guide rail updates and retaining wall construction. Contractor on the $1.9 million project is HRI Inc. of State College.
Final paving on the project will take place this spring. Other work this spring will include bridge sealing and staining. PennDOT will remove signage and shut down the temporary traffic signal until the project starts up again this spring.
