DINGMAN TWP. - Construction for the Log Tavern Road (Route 2006) bridge over Dwarf Kill Creek in Dingman Township, Pike County has been postponed until after Labor Day, PennDOT reported. It was previously scheduled to begin during the week of August 14.
Construction is now expected to begin during the week of September 4 and be complete in December. During this time, an alternating traffic pattern will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-143 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
