Local News

SANDY LAKE, Pa. (WKBN) – PennDOT announced that a bridge project in Mercer County will start on Monday.

The project will rehabiliate a 86-year old bridge, which carries Route 173 (North Main Street) over Sandy Creek in Sandy Lake Borough. The bridge is north of the intersection with Route 358 and south of the intersection with Route 1019.

According to PennDOT, the project will include repairs to existing concrete, waterproofing and upgrades to drainage, shoulders, pavement markings and the guiderail. 

They said drivers will be able to still use the bridge, but there might be traffic controlled by flaggers and temporary signals. 

The project is expected to be finished by August 2.

On average, PennDOT said the bridge is used by 2,500 vehicles per day.
