Lane Closure Coming to Bell Run Bridge/SR 969
CLEARFIELD -A lane closure will begin next week on the Bell Run Bridge along Route 969 in Greenwood Township. Starting May 2, a temporary traffic signal will control an alternating traffic pattern as repairs take place on the bridge.
The bridge is located on state Route 969 near the intersection with US Route 219. Work on the first side of the bridge will take about four weeks. The traffic pattern will then switch to the other side of the bridge.
Work on the Bell Run Bridge is part of a contract to preserve five bridges in Clearfield County. Repairs to the five bridges will help to extend their serviceable life for approximately ten years. Overall work will vary from bridge to bridge but will include beam and abutment repairs, bridge deck repairs, steel repairs and painting, guide rail updates, and miscellaneous activities.
Along with the Bell Run Bridge, the contract includes:
- A bridge on SR 2024 (Old Erie Pike) over Rails to Trails in Pike Township
- The Lee Run Bridge on US Route 219 near Bells Landing
- The Hawk Run Bridge on SR 1009 in Morris Township
- The Beaver Run Bridge on SR 53 in Houtzdale
All work is weather and schedule dependent. C H & D. Enterprises, Inc. of New Stanton is the contractor on this $1million project. All work should be complete before November of this year.
