PennDOT To Lower Weight Limit On One Fulton County Bridge

Effective Monday, Sept. 9, PennDOT lowered the weight limit on one bridge in Fulton County to slow down deterioration and preserve safety while funding for the repairs is uncertain.

The bridge posted is the Route 3005 (High Germany Road) bridge to 22 tons, or 30 tons for combination loads, in Union Township, Fulton County.

Vehicles exceeding the new weight limit must use an alternate route.

PennDOT reminds motorists they can log on to www.511pa.com or call 511 from any phone to check traffic conditions before heading out.

The current district bridge posting information is available on the PennDOT District 9 Web site http:// www.dot. state. pa. us /penndot/districts/district9.nsf.
