Bridge Replacement Project to Begin in Lycoming County

By Staff | Jun 17, 2015

SR 2050 Bridge Over Little Muncy Creek Closing in Franklin and Jordan Township Week of July 6.

The Public-Private Partnership (P3) project to rebuild 558 bridges all across Pennsylvania will get under way in Lycoming County with the closure of the SR 2050 bridge over Little Muncy Creek in Franklin and Jordan Township.

The bridge is scheduled to be closed sometime in the morning on Monday, July 6, though the actual closure date may occur later in the week due to permitting issues. Once the bridge is closed, all Salem Schoolhouse Rd. traffic will be detoured to SR 118, German Rd. and Bomboy Rd. The detour is expected to be in place until mid-September.

The SR 2050 bridge is the first of three bridges to be replaced in Lycoming County this year. Another seven Lycoming County bridges will be replaced in 2016 and 2017.

The bridge replacements are part of the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, a Public-Private Partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP). PWKP will finance, design, replace and maintain the bridges for 25 years, while PennDOT will maintain ownership of the bridges. The P3 approach will allow faster replacement of bridges while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
