Work To Begin on T-357 (Harietta Lane Bridge) Replacement Project

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced prime contractor, Cottle’s Asphalt Maintenance, Inc., of Everett, PA, will begin work on the T-357 (Harietta Lane Bridge) rehabilitation project in Colerain Township, Bedford County, on Tuesday, July 14.

Starting Tuesday, the bridge will be closed and replacement work will start. The scope of work will consist of removal of the existing bituminous wearing surface and the addition of a new 5-inch composite, concrete deck. Minor roadway approach work and guiderail upgrades will also be completed.

A detour will be placed that will follow T-357 (Harrieta Lane), Route 3013 (Valley Road), T-364 (Centennial Road) and back to T-357 (Harrieta Lane). These changes will be in effect for approximately six weeks. 

Work on this bridge is expected to be complete by mid-August 2020. All work on this $1.8 million project that includes the rehabilitation of eleven local bridges in Bedford, Fulton and Huntingdon Counties will be finished by November 2021. All work is weather dependent. 

Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the job-site, and relevant training. 

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 950 traffic cameras. 

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
