SR 2036 (Bald Mountain Road) Streambank Repair Project

Project Overview


The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to a virtual online plans display for the SR 2036 (Bald Mountain Road) Emergency Streambank Repair Project in Bear Creek Township, Luzerne County.

The SR 2036 (Bald Mountain Road) Emergency Streambank Repair along Mill Creek is located approximately 300 feet Southeast of the intersection of SR 2036 (Bald Mountain Road) and SR 2039 (Pittston Blvd).

The purpose of this project is to address erosion and storm damage caused by Hurricane Ida.  The project will include the installation of a rock armored streambank with minor roadway reconstruction and guide rail upgrades.

The project is expected to be let on October 25, 2021.  The roadway is expected to be closed for 4 weeks during construction, starting on October 29, 2021. A 15.7 mile detour will be posted during construction using SR 2039 (Pittston Blvd), PA-115, SR 2038 (Meadow Run Road), and SR 2035 (Suscon Road).  Access through the project area will be maintained for emergency vehicles.

The purpose of the plans display is to introduce and provide the public information on the project.

The project documents will be made available in alternative languages or formats if requested. If you need translation/interpretation services or have special needs or have special concerns that require individual attention, please contact PennDOT Project Manager Summer Koziel, at skoziel@pa.gov or 570.693.4245.
