PennDOT to Display Plans for Bridge Replacement on Rockdale Road in Venango County


Oil City, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation invites the public to view a display of plans for a bridge replacement project on Route 3007 (Rockdale Road) in Scrubgrass Township, Venango County.
The 15-foot-long bridge carries Rockdale Road over the north fork of Scrubgrass Creek and is located about one-quarter mile south of the intersection with Route 208.
The bridge is to be replaced with a concrete box culvert and construction is expected to take place during the summer of 2018.
Plans for the project will be on display:
Date:              July 31 through August 14, 2017

A detour is expected to be in place throughout the duration of the construction.
The existing bridge was built in 1965 and it is used by about 230 vehicles a day, on average.
