The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is using federal funding through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill in order to replace a local bridge.
PennDOT is beginning the $6.3 million Route 488 Portersville Bridge replacement project over Interstate 79 in Muddy Creek Township on Monday.
This new structure will be a two-span composite steel multi-girder bridge with drainage, deck repairs, and utilities. Although the interstate ramps will have short term detours during overnight hours, traffic will be maintained at all times on East Portersville Road.
Although this phrase of construction is estimated to be completed by the end of the month, weather permitting, the entire project will continue until June of 2024.
