PERRY COUNTY, Pa. — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced an online plan display for the Center Square Road (Route 3001) superstructure replacement project over Sherman Creek in Toboyne Township.
The purpose of the project is to address the structural deficiencies of the bridge built in 1959, to provide safe and efficient access on Route 3001 over Sherman Creek, officials say.
Plans include replacing concrete beams and deck, repairing abutments, placing rock scour protection at the abutments, reconstructing the pavement along the roadway tie-ins of the new bridge and replacing the guide rail.
The bridge will be maintained at its current width and will include two 11-foot lanes, a 3-foot left shoulder and a 5-foot right shoulder, according to PennDOT.
The project is expected to take place in 2022.
In accordance with Governor Wolf's COVID-19 mitigation efforts, in plans display will be held online only. A digital version of the information will be available to view online for the next 30 days.
