Venango County - Route 62 Bridge Replacement 

A map showing the location of Rt 62 bridge in Polk, Venango County. 

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to view plans regarding the Route 62 bridge replacement project over Little Sandy Creek in Polk Borough, Venango County.

The project will also include replacement for the current structure with a single span concrete box beam bridge, as well as improvements to the shoulders, and upgrades to the guiderail and drainage.

Work is expected to take place during the 2021 construction season.

Plans call for work to be completed in phases that keep the road open with a single lane and traffic controlled by temporary traffic signals.

Plans and a comment form are available to view through the links below:
