Route 403 bridge replacement begins March 24


PennDOT says another bridge replacement project will be starting this month.  Work will begin March 24th to replace the bridge carrying Route 403 over a tributary to the Conemaugh River in East Wheatfield Township, and where last year motorists were forced to travel to Johnstown using Cramer Pike rather than Haws Pike, this year the situation will be reversed. 


Route 403 will close between Route 711 and Grange Hall Road at 7 AM on March 24th, with the posted detour being Route 56 using Haws Pike.  There are some smaller local roads that could also be used to get around the construction.


The bridge on Route 403 was built in 1930.  It will be replaced with a box culvert and is expected to open to traffic before the end of May.  The project is expected to cost $816,516.
