Construction for the Hallowing Run Road (Route 4020) bridge, spanning Hollowing Run in Lower Augusta Township, Northumberland County, is scheduled to begin as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Northumberland County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of February 12 and be complete in late April. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Boyer Hill Road (Route 4017) and Route 147 (Susquehanna Trail).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-121 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.
