Bridge to isle reopens Aug. 24

SELINSGROVE — Closed for nearly three months during renovations, the Pine Street bridge between Selinsgrove and Isle of Que is set to reopen on schedule Aug. 24.

The only main way on and off the island will reopen to vehicle traffic in time for the start of Selinsgrove Area School District’s 2012-13 year on Aug. 28, PennDOT spokesman Rick Mason said.

The $2.1 million bridge rehabilitation work on the 350-foot long span built in 1952 is being done by HRI and involved steel hardware replacement, installing a new open-steel deck system and painting.

The repairs will keep the bridge free of weight limits and the need for major repairs for the next few decades.

Mason said extra work was required after the contractor determined the bridge had deteriorated more than anticipated and the access road had to be upgraded before the detour could be put in effect.

Motorists traveling to and from the Isle of Que have had to use a detour on Routes 11-15.
