Wellsboro, Pa. – The bridge over Painter Run in Gaines Township, Tioga County, will be replaced according to Tioga State Forest officials. No alternative route for public travel will be available during construction.  

Painter-Leetonia Road will be closed from the state forest boundary on the north end to the intersection of Dead Man Hollow Road and Painter-Leetonia Road.

The road will continue to be closed to the public until the bridge replacement has been completed. Due to extenuating circumstances, the tentative completion date has been extended to October 15, 2019.

Questions regarding the bridge replacement can be addressed at the Tioga State Forest district office at (570) 724-2868.
