Road Use Permits Suspended Due to Poor Conditions

Road use permits issued to Chesapeake Appalachia, LLC for their moving of drilling trucks and other equipment over some State Routes in Bradford County and in Sullivan County have been suspended as per PennDOT. PennDOT reports that the suspensions are due to the company’s failure to deal in a timely manner with severe roadway damage caused by its heavy hauling operations. Under the terms of the permit, Chesapeake is to proactively monitor pavement conditions and immediately begin repairs as needed to keep the road safe. Until adequate repairs are made, only local traffic or traffic less than 10 tons is being allowed on the following state routes in Bradford County: State Route (SR) 1022 (Bridge Street, Ghent Hill Road and Center Valley Road), Ulster, Sheshequin and Rome townships; SR 1057 (Sportsmans Road and Rome Road), Sheshequin and Litchfield townships, and SR 4012 (Laurel Hill Road), Smithfield and Ulster townships. In Sullivan County: SR 4016 (Campbellville Road and Hottensteins Hill Road), Elkland and Forks townships.
