Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to an online plan display regarding the Route 3011 (Mountain Road) bridge replacement project. This project is located over Buck Run in Peters Township, approximately 500 feet from the intersection with Route 16.
The purpose of this project is to address structural deficiencies of the bridge and provide continued safe and efficient crossing of Mountain Road over Buck Run.
The project consists of replacing the 80-year old reinforced concrete slab bridge with a precast reinforced concrete box culvert, approach pavement replacement, rock scour protection, and guide rail updates. The bridge width will be very close to the existing width and will include two 11-foot lanes and 4-foot shoulders.
The bridge will be closed for approximately two months to all traffic during the construction. The proposed detour route will use Route 16, Route 3009 (Oregon Street), Route 416, T-436 (Landis Drive) and Route 75.
The project is currently in design and construction work is anticipated to take place in the 2022 construction season.
In accordance with Governor Wolf's COVID-19 mitigation efforts, plans display will be held online only. A digital version of the information will be available to view online for 30 days.
Information, including roadway and bridge plans and an interactive comment form, can be found by visiting the PennDOT District 8 website, www.penndot.gov/District8, clicking on Public Meetings listed under the Resources heading, and choosing the Franklin County box then the tile marked Mountain Road Over Buck Run.
The purpose of the plans display is to introduce the project and receive public input regarding any questions or concerns with 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.
