the Route 154 bridge spanning Double Run in Forks Township, Sullivan County, is part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Sullivan County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Pre-construction activities are taking place and will continue in preparation to initiate the long-term traffic control to construct the bridge, at which time motorists will utilize an alternating single-lane controlled by temporary stop signs. The week of July 24 is the anticipated start of the stop-sign-controlled work zone. During pre-construction activities, motorists may encounter short-term flagging operations. Motorists are reminded to obey work zone signing and to slow down in work zones.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-127 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.
