CLEARFIELD – Repair work on the Hyde Bridge near the state Route 879/1001 (Washington Avenue) intersection will get underway Monday, June 11. Making repairs to the bridge will extend its useful life for years to come. The bridge spans the west branch of the Susquehanna River, near the village of Hyde on SR 1001 (Washington Avenue).
The turn lane on the bridge will be closed but two-lane traffic will be maintained as bridge repairs are made one-side at a time. Traffic through the work zone will be controlled by signals.
Work includes milling of the existing bridge deck surface, placement of a latex overlay, pavement repair on the bridge approaches, general repairs, and permanent signal upgrades. Work on the bridge is expected to finish mid to late July.
This work is part of a contract to repair/rehabilitate three bridges in Clearfield County. Cottle’s Asphalt Maintenance of Everett will perform the work under this $1.3 million contract.
Drivers are reminded to be cautious in work zones, stay alert for stopped traffic, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.
