Route 8 bridge work brings detour

From staff reports

Route 8 is closed to northbound and southbound traffic in Venango County for bridge rehabilitation work. A detour is posted using Old Route 8 (Route 3013) and Georgetown Road (Route 3004).

The roadway is expected to reopen Sept. 30, and, if needed, close again on Oct. 4. Work is anticipated to be completed by mid-October.

The work is part of the two-year, $32.6 million project to repair and reconstruct nearly 10 miles of Route 8 from Georgetown Road in Irwin Township to Polk Cutoff Road (Route 3024) in Sandycreek Township.
