The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is advising drivers that deck work will begin Monday, April 27th on Youngdale Road (Route 2012) in Wayne Township and work is expected to continue through May 29, 2015.
Crews will begin work to replace the deck on the bridge which spans McElhattan Creek near the Village of Youngdale. The 45 foot bridge was originally built in 1973 and carries an average of 350 vehicles daily. Once the repairs are complete, PennDOT will be able to remove the bridge from Clinton County’s structurally deficient list.
The existing deck will be replaced with a new composite concrete deck. A self-regulating stop sign will enforce an alternating traffic pattern as the deck is replaced one side at a time. Crews from Clinton County PennDOT Maintenance Department will perform the work.
