The Citizens' Voice - - Local - — STAFF RE­PORT

A con­struc­tion project to re­place the Route 115 bridge span­ning Lit­tle Shades Creek, orig­i­nally sched­uled to be­gin this week, has been resched­uled un­til the week of May 2, the Penn­syl­va­nia Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion an­nounced Mon­day.

Mo­torists will use a tem­po­rary bridge for travel around the work zone dur­ing con­struc­tion. Mo­torists are ad­vised to al­low ex­tra time when trav­el­ing through the work area. The new bridge is an­tic­i­pated to be com­plete in Au­gust.

In the event of un­fa­vor­able weather or unforeseen ac­tiv­i­ties, this sched­ule may still change, ac­cord­ing to PENNDOT.

The bridge is one of 558 be­ing re­placed under the Rapid Bridge Re­place­ment Project, a pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship be­tween PENNDOT and Ple­nary Walsh Key­stone Part­ners, which will fi­nance, de­sign, re­place, and main­tain the bridges for 25 years.
