Montoursville, PA – PennDOT today announced its plan to repair a section of Route 414 in Bradford County, that was closed since early December due to an active landslide. The slide area is located at the intersection with Jennings Road in Leroy Township.
The original plan was to begin work this spring with a planned opening next fall. However, PennDOT and its contractor are coordinating efforts to advance repairs over the winter months with the intention of reopening the road this summer. Stream realignment started in December and will continue.
Early completion of this project depends on weather conditions and the stability of the ground, which is extremely saturated due to last year’s record rainfall.
A detour using Route 3005 (Canton Cross Road), Route 3008 (Southside Road) and Route 414 will remain in place.
Local traffic will be able to access Route 414 on either side of the slide area.
PennDOT will provide updates for the project as more information becomes available.
Glenn O. Hawbaker is the prime contractor on this $2.2 million project.
