A Clarion company plans to repair the St. Charles Bridge this spring after being awarded the contract by the Armstrong County Commissioners on Thursday.

The Terra Works company's bid of $47,247 was the lowest of six submitted to repair the bridge that straddles the line between Madison and Porter townships. An inspection last year revealed structural weaknesses in the bridge on St. Charles Road. A PennDOT study shows that about 125 cars cross the 120-foot bridge per day.

Armstrong and Clarion counties will share the cost of repairing the bridge equally. Armstrong will pay its portion with money it gets from the Marcellus shale impact fee allotment, county Planning Coordinator Christopher Jaros said.

Officials do not expect to close the bridge during repairs, Jaros said.
