PennDOT Announces Public Plans Display for the Orangeville Road Bridge Replacement Project in City of Hermitage, Mercer County


​The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to a plans display regarding the superstructure replacement of the Orangeville Road (Route 3019) bridge over Towel Works Run in the City of Hermitage, Mercer County.

The bridge is located on Orangeville Road, approximately one mile from the intersection with Route 718.

The project will include work on the superstructure replacement and minimal roadway approach work. Work is expected to occur in the 2020 construction season.

Plans for the project will be displayed:

Date:              November 25 to December 13, 2019
Time:             8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Monday through Friday)
                      Closed November 28 and 29, 2019 for holiday
Location:       City of Hermitage
                      800 North Hermitage Road
                      Hermitage, PA 16148

A detour will be required during construction. The 2.6-mile-long detour route proposed would use Route 0718, Orangeville Road and Buckeye Drive.

The existing bridge was built in 1957. It is posted in poor condition and posted with a weight limit. Approximately 329 vehicles a day use the bridge, on average.

The plans display is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the project’s potential effect upon Cultural Resources pursuant to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation’s 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

The display is being held in a facility that complies with requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and it is accessible to individuals who have disabilities. Also, 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, contact Matt Antrilli, Project Manager, no later than November 25 at, or call 814-678-7169.
