Work on this bridge should be completed by the middle of May.


Route 36 culvert work starting

Work to construct a box culvert on Route 36 in Clearfield County is scheduled to start this week, PennDOT said. The box culvert will replace a metal pipe arch about

2.5 miles south of the village of Newburg, near the Five Points intersection.

Crews will be working on tree removal, erosion and sedimentation controls and construction of a temporary run-around. The temporary roadway should be in use by mid-April.

The project is expected to be complete in August.
