A bridge replacement project on Route 239 between Maple Lane and Klinger Hill Road in Sugarloaf Township, Columbia County, is set to begin Monday, June 27.

Work includes removal of the existing structure and construction of a single span pre-stressed concrete box beam bridge, drainage improvements and the installation of guide rail.

A detour will be in place using Route 487, Camp Lavigne Road and Route 118.

Work is expected to be completed in October.
