The bridge that carries Route 8 over a tributary of Wolf Creek in Barkeyville Borough, Venango County will be closed for seven days starting August 5, 2018.
The closure is necessary in order to replace the bridge with a box culvert. The bridge is located near the entrance to Ward Trucking, between the intersection of Route 8 and Gibb Road and the intersection of Route 8 and Gilmore Road (SR 3004).
In connection with the project, Route 8 will be closed at the bridge from August 5 to August 11, 2018. A detour will be posted using Route 8, Interstate 80, and Route 308.
