Construction for the Route 209 (Interchange Road) bridge, spanning Middle Creek in Kresgeville, Monroe 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 Monroe County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin after Memorial Day, during the week of May 28, and be complete in late December 2018. During this time, an alternating traffic pattern will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-179 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.
