PennDOT announced Friday two bridge replacement projects in Mercer County set to begin this summer.
Work is scheduled to begin June 10 to replace an aging, structurally deficient bridge on Route 173, one mile north of Scrubgrass Road. The bridge spans Wolf Creek in Worth Township.
The current 35-foot-long bridge will be replaced with a 52-foot structure with updated drainage, guiderails and pavement markings.
The total cost of the bridge replacement is $757,191 and should be complete by October 31.
Detours will be posted using Scrubgrass Road, Centertown Road and Kilgore Road.
In Jefferson Township, crews will begin work June 17 to replace a 78-year-old bridge on Route 258 over a tributary of the Shenango River, between the intersections of Charleston Road and Daley Road.
The project will cost about $227, 892 and should be complete by the end of August.
Detours will be posted using Clay Furnace Road, Neshannock Road, Route 62 and Valley Road.
