Bridge work planned for Route 68 in Brady's Bend
Traffic will be limited to one lane on Route 68 between Kittanning Hollow and Seybertown roads in Brady's Bend until October while PennDOT replaces five bridges on the one-mile stretch.
New Stanton's C.H.&D. Enterprises started the $4.7 million project last week.
During the first round of construction, crews will replace two bridges crossing Sugar Creek. A temporary traffic signal at each end of the construction zone will be used to regulate traffic.
The second construction phase will replace a bridge over Sugar Creek, and bridges over Hart Run and Whiskey Run creeks. PennDOT has not released its schedule for the second phase of construction, but the entire bridge replacement project is expected to be done next summer.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
