Oil City, PA – PennDOT has announced an adjustment in the schedule and detour route for the project to rehabilitate the bridge that carries the Reynolds Industrial Park Road over the Shenango River in Pymatuning Township, Mercer County.
The 183-foot-long bridge on the Reynolds Park Industrial Road (Route 4012) is located about one half mile east of the intersection with Route 18 and about two and one half miles west of the intersection with Route 58.
Work on the bridge was initially expected to begin today, May 8, 2017. The start of work is now expected to begin on May 10, 2017, weather permitting.
A detour will be required during construction. The posted detour route will use Route 58, Route 358 and Route 18. Initially, separate car and truck detours were planned, but now there will be one detour route.
Work is scheduled to be completed by August 11, 2017.
PennDOT urges motorists to slow down when driving in work zones, and also to be alert to changing conditions, avoid distractions and to pay attention to signs and flaggers. Drive responsibly in work zones for your safety and the safety of the workers.
