PennDOT will start work to replace the Flaugherty Run Bridge over Business Loop 376 in Findlay beginning Monday, according to a news release.

Flagging operations will begin on the bridge from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday as crews prep the bridge for the project, the release said. Traffic stoppages of 15 minutes or less may occur.

During the first phase of the project, traffic will be moved to the western side of the bridge. A single lane of traffic will be open in each direction through early July.

Additionally, long-term shoulder restrictions are planned in each direction on Business Loop 376 through late June. After that, a full closure will occur.

The $4.38 million project is slated to be complete by the end of 2019, said Steve Cowan, a PennDOT spokesman. Carmen Paliotta Contracting is the prime contractor.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
