Weight Restriction Removed From County Bridge



With repairs complete, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has removed weight restrictions on a Rich Valley Road/Straight Creek Road (Route 4004) bridge in Cameron County. The 51-foot bridge spans the Driftwood Branch of Sinnemahoning Creek in Shippen Township, east of the Elk/Cameron County line. The bridge carries an average of less than 50 vehicles daily.

The one-lane, timber deck bridge had been posted with weight limits of 21-ton for single vehicles and 33-ton for combination vehicles. Now that repairs have been made to the beam ends, PennDOT has removed the restrictions.
