West Stancliff Road Bridge Replacement Project
The McKean Township Supervisors have secured a grant through the Act 13 Erie County At-Risk Bridge Program, to remove and replace the existing single span concrete and steel beam bridge on West Stancliff Road, which spans Lamson Run. The total project cost is $240,000 with McKean Township providing the local match. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2019.
BRIDGE REPLACEMENTS ON OLD 99
McKean Township has received information from the Erie County Department of Planning and Community Development that 2 million dollars of the Local Use Fee plus 2 million dollars pledged by PennDOT of federal funds will be dedicated to repair and replace deteriorated bridges owned and maintained by municipalities.
McKean Township has three bridges on Old 99 which have been prioritized to receive the Local Use Fee funds for replacement. Two of these bridges are over tributaries to Lamson Run and one bridge is over Lamson Run. The total estimated cost for replacement of all three bridges is 2 million dollars. We anticipate construction to take place sometime in 2020 and 2021.
Last year we spend $350,000 resurfacing various roads throughout the township. If there is a problem with ditches or potholes in the spring, please call our office at 476-7414. All Township paved roads will be posted with a 10-ton weight limit until May 15, 2018. Observing the weight limitation on these roads through the early spring months will help avoid costly road repairs.
This year we will be replacing the bridge on Van Camp Road near Neuburger Road through an approved Low Volume Road Project with funding being provided by the Erie County Conservation District at $80,000. Another approved project through the same funding is the Mayfair Drive/Elk Creek Tributary Stream bank Rehabilitation Project scheduled to take place in 2018 at a funded cost of $28,976.
