Bridge Open to Traffic on Second Street

April 15, 2014
BROOKVILLE- The bridge on Route 3033 (Second Street) over Sandy Lick Creek in Brookville Borough reopened to traffic yesterday. The bridge was closed Sunday evening due to an 18 inch hole in the deck caused by a piece of concrete becoming dislodged between the beams.

The bridge was built in 1965 and has a concrete deck over concrete box beams. The deck is covered with asphalt.

PennDOT has assessed the damage to the bridge and is performing temporary repairs to the bridge deck. Jefferson County Maintenance crews are attaching a steel plate to the deck and will apply asphalt over the plate to permit the bridge to reopen to traffic.

A permanent repair is being planned to include cutting out a piece of the deck and installing new concrete and repaving over it.
