Construction for the Route 997 (Roxbury Road) bridge, spanning Doubling Gap Creek in Lower Mifflin Township, Cumberland 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 Cumberland County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of June 26 and be complete in early September. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 233 and Center Road. Shed Road, a township road where the bridge intersects Roxbury Road, will be closed during construction. Local residents on Shed Road will follow an additional detour along Blain McCrea Road, Pipeline Road, and Mountain Road.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-240 and is one out 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.
