Construction for the Rockland Cranberry Road (Route 2013) bridge, spanning East Sandy Creek in Cranberry and Rockland townships, Venango 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 Venango County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of July 9 and be complete in mid-September. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour Rockland Nickleville Road (Route 2002), Route 38 and Route 322 (Lakes to the Sea Highway).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-17 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.
