Open house to talk re­plac­ing Route 29 bridge

The Morning Call - - LOCAL NEWS -

Pen­nDOT will host an open house on Oct. 3 to dis­cuss plans for an up­com­ing pro­ject to re­place the Route 29 (Main Street) bridge be­tween 10th Street in Penns­burg and 11th Street in Red Hill in Mont­gomery County.

The pur­pose of the open house is to present plans to res­i­dents and pro­vide an up­date on the pro­ject. Res­i­dents will have an op­por­tu­nity to gather in­for­ma­tion and dis­cuss the dif­fer­ent facets of the pro­ject with Pen­nDOT’s de­sign team.

The open house will be held at the Penns­burg mu­nic­i­pal build­ing, 76 W. Sixth St., from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Pen­nDOT plans to re­place the bridge, re­con­struct the road ap­proaches and side­walk and lower the road to im­prove sight dis­tance.

Con­struc­tion bids on the pro­ject are ex­pected to open in the fall of 2020, and the pro­ject will be funded by the state.
