Bridge projects to continue across Centre County

Bridge preservation projects will continue across Centre County this week. The state Department of Transportation announced traffic restrictions at several locations.

On state Route 64, near the village of Nittany in Walker Township, temporary traffic signals will be installed Monday. The signals will be flashing until Thursday, when they will be fully operational and maintain a single-lane alternating traffic pattern. Crews will intall a new deck and parapets and a 10-foot width restriction will be in effect through Oct 3.

On U.S. Route 322 westbound near the the Reese Hollow Road/East Mountain Road exit in Worth Township, traffic will continue to be reduced to one lane. Work will include a new latex concrete overlay and miscellaneous repairs. A 12-foot width restriction will be in effect through Oct. 3.

A traffic switch will take place Tuesday on a Route 322 bridge that spans Sinking Creek east of Boalsburg, near Pets Come First. During the day, flaggers will direct traffic to a single lane. Work will involve painting new lines and resetting a temporary barrier. The road will be open to traffic in both directions at the end of the work day. A 10-foot width restriction will be in place through Aug. 21.

Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. is the contractor on a this $2.2 million contract to preserve five bridges in the county.

The other two bridges are on Route 3040 in Julian and on Route 322 spanning Galbraith Run near Boalsburg.
