Work to begin Tuesday on 4 Centre County bridges

Construction will get underway Tuesday on four Centre County bridges in need of repair.

Harris, Huston, Walker and Worth townships each have deficient bridges, and as part of a combined $2.2 million repair project, the bridge work will include beam rehabilitation, deck work, concrete repairs, guide rail installation, paving and painting of pavement markings, according to a state Department of Transportation news release Friday.

The Galbraith Run bridge on U.S. Route 322 east of Boalsburg is first to be repaired by State College contractor Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. Traffic will be directed with signs.

A 10-foot width restriction will begin March 25 on the bridge, and a temporary barrier will be installed, according to PennDOT.

On March 20, construction will begin in Julian on Alternate Route 220 at the intersection with Beaver Road. A traffic signal will caution motorists on the site until March 25.

A bridge on state Route 64 in Walker Township, and an overpass bridge on westbound Route 322 in Worth Township near the Reese Hollow Road exit also will be worked on.

All work is expected to be completed by October, PennDOT said.
