Project Overview

The Route 6 (Columbus Avenue) bridge over Keppels Run is located between the intersection with the Apache Avenue and the intersection with Shady Avenue near the Erie and Warren county line in the City of Corry. 

The existing concrete slab bridge was built in 1917. It is classified as poor condition due to superstructure and substructure deterioration. Approximately 10,000 vehicles a day use the bridge, on average. 

The project will include replacing the existing bridge with a reinforced concrete box culvert. Work will also include new roadway approaches and updated guiderail and pavement markings.

The bridge and nearby roadway are expected to be closed for seven days during construction. A 35.5-mile detour will be posted using Route 6, Route 27, and Route 426. Work is expected to occur during the 2021 construction season.
