09/13/2021

​The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to a virtual plans display for a project to replace the Toll Gate Road Bridge over the Unnamed Tributary to Leaf Creek in Amity and Douglass Townships, Berks County.

The project is currently in design and construction work is anticipated to begin in 2024.

PennDOT invites community members to provide public input for the project. To access the webpage visit www.PennDOT.gov/District5 click on the Public Meetings link under the District Links heading, pick the Berks County box, and then choose the Toll Gate Road Bridge Project tile.

The purpose of the plans display is to introduce the project and solicit public input, questions, or concerns regarding the project. It 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.

In accordance with Governor Wolf's COVID-19 mitigation efforts, the plans display will be held online only. A digital version of the information will be available to view online until October 15, 2021.

The project documents can be made available in alternative languages or formats if requested.
