Construction for a bridge on Little Marsh Creek Road (Route 1002), in Boggs Township, Centre County, is scheduled to begin as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. The bridge spans a branch of Little Marsh Creek, near the village of Yarnell. Replacing this bridge will remove the 34 and 40-ton weight limit postings and allow PennDOT to remove it from Centre County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of July 10 and be complete in late September. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Little Marsh Creek Road (Route 1002), Moose Run Road (Route 4007), Route 150, and Howard Divide Road (Route 1001).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-29 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.
