The Quaker Lake Road (Route 4002) bridge, which spans Little Rhiney Creek in Silver Lake Township, Susquehanna County, reopened to traffic today. This bridge was replaced as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project and allows PennDOT to remove it from the state's structurally deficient bridge list.
The bridge reopened to traffic on Friday, June 16. Replacement work was performed by B.T. Adams, LLC.
The original closure was scheduled for 75 days, but the project team was able to expedite construction and complete the project 15 days ahead of schedule.
The new crossing is longer and wider than the one it replaced and is designed with a 100-year lifespan.
This bridge is referred to as JV-155 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.
