TIOGA COUNTY, P.a. (WETM) — Two bridges in Tioga County will begin construction on April 3, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

A preservation project on Route 15 is planned for the bridge over Mill Creek Reservoir in Tioga Township, P.a. The preservation will affect northbound travel between Exit 182 and Exit 191. The project is expected to be finished in September. During this time, there will be a single lane with barriers for motorists headed north.

A bridge over Hammond Creek on Route 1013 in Jackson Township will start to be replaced on Monday as well. A portion of Jackson Center Road from the intersections with Tower Hill Road and Lake Road will be closed while the bridge is being replaced. There will be a detour available using Routes 1011, 549, and 1018. This project is expected to be finished by the end of June.

People traveling through these areas should be prepared for stopped traffic and delays. Motorists should drive with caution through the work zones and allocate for more time when traveling.

The bridge restoration project is expected to cost $1.2 million, and the main contractor will be RAM Construction Services of Michigan.
