Construction for a Shade Road (Route 1004) bridge, spanning Little Lost Creek in McAlisterville, Juniata County, was expected to begin on September 10. The start has been postponed one week and will begin on September 17. During this time drivers will encounter a detour using Route 35, Tennis Park Road and Shade Road.
This bridge is referred to as JV-54 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.
