The Boyles Run Road (Route 4022) bridge, which spans Boile
Run in Lower Augusta Township, Northumberland County, that’s been under construction as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, is complete and open to traffic. Replacement of the bridge allows PennDOT to remove it from Northumberland County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
The bridge reopened to traffic on Friday, August 18. Replacement work was performed by HRI, Inc. of State College, PA.
The new crossing is longer and wider than the one it replaced and is designed with a 100-year lifespan.
This bridge is referred to as JV-122 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.
