It’s official: Sawmill Run Bridge closed to traffic

July 29, 2013

After weeks of waiting the Sawmill Run bridge located on West Mahoning Street (Route 36) was finally closed to traffic on Monday morning, following weeks of delays due to utility relocation issues. The road is closed between the intersections of Walnut Street and Foundry Street for the replacement of the bridge carrying Route 36 over Sawmill Run.
A detour is in place using Route 436 and Route 119. This detour will be in place until November 2013. The $1,091,540 bridge replacement project is being constructed by M & B Services, LLC of Clarion.

DUBOIS — When Dianna Helt lost her son, Paul Bair Jr., in 2011 to suicide, she was consumed with grief. But as time went on, she felt a desire to help others who were suffering a similar kind of grief.

Helt is the Chapter Products Officer of the Jefferson County A.B.A.T.E. of PA, Chapter No. 14, District 5, which stands for "Alliance of Bikers Aimed Toward Education."

A.B.A.T.E. is an organization of motorcyclists dedicated to the protection of the individual rights of motorcyclists through political change, public education and charitable works.
