The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is notifying area motorists that it has closed a Route 2020 (Presqueisle Street) bridge in Clearfield County. The bridge spans Moshannon Creek in the borough of Chester Hill near the Clearfield/Centre County line.

The bridge was closed on Jan. 10 based on the results of a recent inspection. The bridge will remain closed until repairs can be made. Those repairs will take place as soon as possible. During this closure, an official detour will be in place. The detour directs drivers to use McGuirk Street, Walton Street/West Maple Street, and Water Street.

The steel truss bridge was originally constructed in 1940, is 128 ft. long, and carries an average of more than 2,000 vehicles daily.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 mi., by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 850 traffic cameras.

511PA also is available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
