Construction for the Route 3040/Alternate Route 220 (Appalachain
Throughway/South Eagle Valley Road) bridge, is scheduled to begin soon as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. The bridge spans Laurel Run in Port Matilda Borough, Centre County. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Centre County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of June 11 and be complete in early November. 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-31 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.
