BELLEFONTE – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced Friday that repair work on two Interstate 80 bridges in Centre County is scheduled for next week.
The bridges span Route 26 near the Bellefonte/161 westbound on- and off-ramps.
Starting Monday, Dec. 3, crews will be working to repair beams on the bridges. Work will take place each day, beginning at 7 a.m. and continuing through daylight.
This work will take place underneath the bridges and will require lane closures and flagging along the bridged section of Route 26.
Drivers should remain alert for flaggers in the roadway and should expect short delays as they travel through the area. The new traffic signal on Route 26 at the end of the I-80 westbound off-ramp will be adjusted temporarily and a flagger will be at that location to ease traffic flow.
This work is an extension of this year’s I-80 improvement project between the viaduct bridges at mile-marker 138 to the Yarnell area at mile-marker 155. HRI Inc. of State College has been the contractor for this $21.7 million project.
