|Two bridges over Route 41 just south of Route 372 are scheduled for repairs/replacement which will cause Route 41 to be closed for the duration of the project. Completion will take approximately 12 weeks. There is a daily incentive to the awarded contractor, however, for early completion as well as daily penalties for missing the deadline. The project is expected to go out for bid in June and awarded in August. Both bridges are located in an identified Bog Turtle habitat which will control construction time. The project cannot start before October 15th and must be completed by April 1st.
The detour route determined by PennDOT will be Route 30 east to Route 10 south to Route 41 in Cochranville. Signs will be placed at Routes 10 & 30 and 10 & 41 advising of the closure as well as informational signs along the detour route. Signs will also be placed in and outside of the Borough restricting the flow of vehicles trying to shortcut the detour route. Parkesburg Police detour enforcement, above normal patrol hours, will be paid as part of the contract. Parking along W. 1st Avenue will not be impacted.
