Construction for the Route 4009 (Diamond Valley Road) bridge, spanning Shaver Creek in Logan Township, Huntingdon 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 Huntingdon County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of March 19 and be complete in early July. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 4002 (Brookside Road), Route 4004 (Barree Road), and Route 305 (Juniata Valley Pike Road).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-343 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.
The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP
), under which PWKP
will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impacts on motorists.
