Township Contact: Vicki Knepp

Penn Township, in conjunction with PennDOT District 8-0, will present a plans display for the bridge replacement of S.R. 174 (Walnut Bottom Road) Section 016, located approximately 3.5 miles south of the intersection of S.R. 174 and S.R. 233. The project replaces the existing single span bridge with a concrete box culvert. Approximately 200 feet of roadway reconstruction is included in the project, along with guide rail replacement and embankment work. A 9.8-mile detour route will be used during construction. The detour route will utilize SR 0233 (Centerville Road) and Interstate 81. A display of engineering plans, including the proposed detour, will be available for viewing at the Township building from April 4 through May 9, 2018 during normal business hours.


If special assistance is needed to enable the review of the plans by individuals with a disability, please contact PennDOT’s consultant contact, Jeffrey Chubb, P.E. at (717) 763-7211 in advance of the visit to allow time to arrange for the required accommodations.
