the Route 87 (Loyalsock Avenue) bridge, spanning a tributary to Loyalsock Creek in Upper Fairfield Township, Lycoming 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 Lycoming 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 a temporary runaround. The week of August 4 is the anticipated traffic switch to the temporary runaround. 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-108 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.
