Bridge work to close road
March 11, 2014 10:50 AM

Work will begin later this month to replace the bridge carrying Route 403 over a tributary to the Conemaugh River in East Wheatfield Township.

According to a release from the state Department of Transportation, Route 403 will close between Route 711 and Grange Hall Road on March 24 at 7 a.m.

Posted detour signs will route traffic to Route 56 in Johnstown, to Route 22 and back to Route 403.

This structurally deficient bridge, built in 1930, will be replaced with a box culvert, and is expected to open to traffic before the end of May.

This $816,516 replacement project is being done by J. C. Lee Construction and Supply Co.
