PENNDOT POSTS NEW RESTRICTIONS ON TWO MORE BRIDGES
Two spans in Center Township now have lower weight limits

10/18/2013

PennDOT has posted new weight restriction on two more bridges in Indiana County. 

 

The bridges are on Aulds Run Road over Aultmans Run in Center Township, which is now posted at 31 tons, or 40 tons for combination loads; and on Old Route 56 over the CSX Railroad in Center Township, newly-posted at 35 tons, or 40 tons combination loads.

 

PennDOT began posting the bridges as part of a campaign to pressure the legislature to find a new funding formula to fix them.  The agency says that the bridges are not in peril now, but could become dangerous without the new postings because their deterioration will continue without the funding for repairs.  Lawmakers in Harrisburg failed to come up with a plan in the new budget and have not addressed the issue so far in the fall session.
