Bridge Preservation Work Starts Along South Atherton Street

The PA Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will start bridge preservation work, spanning the Slab Cabin Run on South Atherton Street, on Monday, April 24. Overall, the work at this location will include barrier placement, removal and replacement of the concrete median, deck repairs, beam repairs, guide rail installation, paving and other miscellaneous items.

The bridge work zone will also feature an alternating traffic pattern with temporary traffic signals. The alternating traffic pattern will allow Rylind Construction Company crew members to work on the bridge in half-width sections. The construction project is weather and schedule dependent, but expected to continue through the end of July.

The existing bridge was construction in 1932 and carries an average of more than 27,000 vehicles a day. Once completed, the repairs will remove the bridge from Center County’s structurally deficient list.

Drivers that commute through this work zone are reminded to follow detour signs, move through the work zone with caution, obey the posted speed limits and to always buckle up.
