County Construction Projects

    Other Construction Work (e.g. utility work)

    • Main Street Railroad Overpass -  Main Street (CR 533) in Manville Borough will be CLOSED starting Tuesday, 12/4/2018 at 8:00PM until 5:00AM (Wednesday) for overnight repair work on the railroad overpass bridge located just south of Brook Boulevard.  A local detour will be posted for the segment of Main Street (CR 533) closed between Brooks Blvd and Camplain Rd.  Repair work will be performed by Norfolk Southern Railroad's contractor.  (Updated 12-4-2018)
       
    • Mettlers Road Bridge G0601 - Metters Road, located 1/2 mile north of Amwell Road and 1 mile south of Weston Road, Franklin Township, was closed this afternoon (10/23/2018  1:30PM) for emergency bridge repairs.  Concrete barriers are in place on either side of the bridge, which is located between Duck Pond and Mettlers Pond.  Bridge Closed signage is in place at Amwell Road and Weston Road intersections.  Colonial Drive off of Mettlers Road can still be accessed from Weston Road.  Due to periods of heavy rains and area flooding, water lowering efforts at Duck Pond and upstream ponds have been hampered.  Dewatering efforts continue and bridge repairs will begin once water levels are able to be lowered.  At this time we now estimate that bridge repairs will be completed by end of December 2018, weather permitting.  (Updated 11-30-2018)
