Section of Route 4002 (Clarence Road) will be closed; detour will be in place
CLEARFIELD – Work to replace the Clarence Bridge in Centre County will begin on Friday, April 1. The bridge is located on Route 4002 (Clarence Road) in the village of Clarence. A section of Route 4002 will be closed from Clarence, south to Route 144 in Snow Shoe. A detour using Route 144 will be in place. Residents living within the road closure will be able to access their homes.
Project work includes replacing the current bridge with a new, one-span, concrete beam bridge, approach and roadway paving, drainage items, guide rail installation, pavement markings and miscellaneous construction. PennDOT expects the Clarence Bridge to be open to traffic by mid-July.
This bridge replacement is part of a $1 million contract that also includes replacement of a smaller bridge between Cattail Road and Route 144. Work on that bridge will begin after the Clarence Bridge is complete. Francis J. Palo, Inc. of Clarion is the contractor on this two-bridge project.
PennDOT advises drivers to obey posted speed limits and follow detour signs. For more information on roadway construction and maintenance operations, visit PennDOT’s website at www.dot.state.pa.us.
