Bridge to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership Project
GREENWOOD TOWNSHIP – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project continues in Clearfield County with reconstruction set to begin the week of July 27 for the following bridge:
Route 219 over Curry Run in Greenwood Township (JV38). Signals are in place to control an alternating traffic pattern. Replacing this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Clearfield County’s structurally deficient list.
The 50-foot bridge dates from 1925 and carries and average of more than 2,400 vehicles each day. Completion of the new bridge is expected by November.
Construction starts are subject to change due to weather, equipment or other unforeseen issues.
The bridge replacements are part of the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, a Public-Private Partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP) under which PWKP will finance, design, replace and maintain the bridges for 25 years.
The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
