The Route 414 bridge, which spans Callahan Run in the Village of Jersey Mills, McHenry Township, Lycoming County, reopened to traffic today. This bridge was replaced as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project and allows PennDOT to remove it from the state’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Replacement work was performed by Glenn O. Hawbaker, 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-111 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.
