Clearfield � On Tuesday, June 15, PennDOT will close a bridge in the town of Coalport.
The bridge spans Clearfield Creek on Route 3008 in Coalport, Clearfield County. The bridge will be closed through June in order to make repairs to the deck and install a new, latex concrete deck surface.
There will be a detour around the closure as work takes place. The detour will make use of State Routes 3005 and 53. Drivers are reminded to obey posted speed limits and detour signs.
Swank Associated Companies of New Kensington is the contractor on this job. The project is financed with federal funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and is part of a $2.2 million contract to rehabilitate seven bridges in Clearfield and Potter counties.
This project is part of PennDOT�s more than $66 million investment of federal economic recovery funds being spent on 17 transportation projects across the nine counties of District 2.
