Bridge work coming

MAYBERRY TWP. – A PennDOT bridge crew in Northumberland County will begin a bridge replacement project on Route 2001, or Little Roaring Creek Road, at the Northumberland/Montour county line next month.

 The existing 33’-long bridge was built in 1900 and is currently classified as structurally deficient. The bridge carries the road over Little Roaring Creek, about a mile south of Boyd Station Road or about 2.5 miles north of Route 54, and connects Rush and Mayberry townships.

 This work will include redirecting Little Roaring Creek, removing the existing bridge, placing a new precast rigid-frame box culvert, pouring new curbs, upgrading guiderail, and paving the box and both roadway approaches.

 While the work is underway, the road will be closed and traffic detoured to Sharp Ridge Road and Susquehanna Road. The detour will begin June 9.

 The new bridge is scheduled to be open to traffic by late July.
