ASYLUM TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WETM) – Motorists are advised that a bridge replacement project is set to begin next week on Route 2018 in Asylum Township, Bradford County.
The bridge, which runs over a tributary to the Susquehanna River, is located on Route 2018 and Township Road T-460 (Boat Club Road), approximately .20 miles east of the intersection with Route 187 in Asylum Township.
The Contractor, Susquehanna Valley Construction Corporation, is scheduled to begin construction of a temporary roadway on Monday, May 11. Traffic will be single lane controlled with daylight flagging while the temporary roadway is being constructed.
