Construction for a Route 1002 (Honey Creek Road) bridge in Mifflin County is scheduled to begin soon as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. The bridge spans Honey Creek in Armagh Township, just west of the village of Locke Mills. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Mifflin County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin the week of June 4 and be complete in mid-August. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 1003 (Lock Mills Road), Route 446, Route 818 (Siglerville Pike), and Route 1001 (Naginey Road).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-77 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.
