Work on the bridge consists of bridge repairs including but not limited to structural steel repairs, deck repairs, concrete beam and substructure repairs, masonry repairs, bearing repairs, joint repairs/joint sealing, painting, scour countermeasures and channel repairs, along with other miscellaneous construction.
The Weir Mountain Road Bridge over Weir Creek is reduced to a single lane controlled with stop signs. Once the repairs are complete the bridge will return to two lanes (one in each direction).
The bridge repairs are part of a $3.1 million contract to make repairs to six bridges in the Northeastern Pennsylvania region. Fabcor, Inc. of Jessup, Pa. is the general contractor.
Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, and relevant training.
