New Weight Limit for Centerville Bridge

 PennDOT reports a weight limit has been set on the Route 8 bridge over a branch of Oil Creek in Centerville Borough in Crawford County. The new restriction will limit the weight crossing it to 31 tons or 34 tons for combination loads. The weight restriction was implemented after a routine inspection uncovered deterioration to the 140-foot, steel girder bridge. Repairs are not planned until 2025.
The bridge was built in 1930 and is classified as poor condition. Approximately 3,000 vehicles use the bridge daily, on average.
