PennDOT says a 93 year-old bridge in Canal Township in western Venango County will be replaced beginning Monday, August 5.
The current 43 foot-long span has been declared structurally deficient. It crosses McCune Run, just south of the intersection of McCune Road and Old Route 322.
Although the work is expected to continue through May, 2014, officials expect to be able to reopen the road in October.
Meanwhile, PennDOT’s official detour will utilize Old Route 322 and Stevens Road.
