Construction for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project will continue in Bradford County in 2017. Construction crews plan to replace four of the county’s structurally deficient bridges this year.
The Route 14 (Canton Street) bridge, which spans Fall Brook in Troy Borough (JV-89) will be one of the bridges to be replaced in 2017. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in early Spring. During construction, northbound Route 14 through traffic will be detoured using Creek Road (SR 3034) and Route 6. Southbound Route 14 traffic will be able to proceed through the work zone.
In addition, residents should anticipate for construction to take place at the following bridge locations:
• Route 414 bridge, spanning a tributary to Towanda Creek in Franklin Township (JV-93). Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-Summer. During construction, drivers will utilize a temporary roadway.
• Irish Hill Road (SR 1059) bridge, spanning Wappasening Creek in Warren Township (JV-99). Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in early Spring. During construction, drivers will be detoured.
• Berwick Turnpike (SR 4013) bridge, spanning Miller Run in Ridgebury Township (JV-100). Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-Summer. During construction, motorists will utilize a single lane condition, with alternating traffic flow controlled by temporary traffic signals.
For more information about these bridges, please contact Andy Dressler, Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners Central Region Public Information Coordinator and Traffic Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or the project hotline at 877-444-9990.
These bridges are referred to as JV-89, JV-93, JV-99 and JV-100. They are four of 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
