The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announces that its Potter County Maintenance Division is closing Route 1001 (Brookland Road) between Marvin Hill and A Frame Road in Sweden Township, Potter County, and implementing a detour on Monday, August 22. Maintenance crews are closing the road to replace a trio of storm
water drainage pipes to improve drainage and ride quality.
While the detour is in place, traffic will follow Route 6 and Route 449. It is a daylight closure where crews will lift the detour at the close of each workday. PennDOT expects the replacements to take about a week, but all work is weather and schedule dependent.
PennDOT’s Potter County Maintenance Division will complete all work associated with this project.
