Bridge Replacement Work Begins Soon in Potter County


Route 1011 in Bingham Township, near Ulysses

Coudersport, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will begin a bridge replacement project on Route 1011 (Hickox/Ulysses Road) in Bingham Township, Potter County on Monday, April 17. Built in 1941, the bridge spans the Genesee River near the village of Ulysses. This structure is 45 feet long and carries an average of more the 600 vehicles daily. Replacing the bridge will improve the structure’s rating from “poor” to “good.”

On Monday, the section of Route 1011 near the bridge will be closed and a detour will be in place. The detour will direct traffic to use Route 1012 (Jackson Road), Route 49, and Route 1011.

Overall work includes the removal of the existing bridge, construction of a new single-span concrete bridge, paving, pavement base drains, guide rail updates, pavement markings, and miscellaneous items.

Nestlerode Contracting Company, Inc. of Lock Haven is the contractor on this $1 million project. PennDOT anticipates completion in early September, but all work is weather dependent. PennDOT will issue project updates as work progresses.

Motorists are encouraged to “Know Before They Go” by checking conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
