Construction Rescheduled on Quakake Road Bridge in Packer Township

Carbon County Bridge to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership

Allentown, PA – Construction for the bridge carrying Quakake Road over Quakake Creek in Packer Township, Carbon County, has been rescheduled to begin during the week of October 8 as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.  The bridge had been scheduled to close for construction during the week of October 1.

When the bridge closes for full replacement, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Spring Mountain Road, Route 93 (Main Street), Route 424, Route 309 (Mile Hill Road) and Ben Titus Road. Replacement of the bridge is anticipated to be complete in late October.

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change. 

This bridge is referred to as JV-174 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 impacts on motorists.
