Construction for the Route 30 (Lincoln Highway) bridge, spanning Burns Creek in Juniata Township, Bedford County, is scheduled to begin as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Bedford County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Preliminary work of constructing a temporary roadway will begin during the week of April 24. During this time, flaggers will assist in guiding traffic.
Construction to replace the bridge is expected to begin in late May and be complete in early August. During this time, drivers will utilize a temporary roadway around the bridge.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-310 and is one out of the 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.
