Repair of County Bridge No. D0105, Great Road (CR 601) over Beden's Brook, Township of Montgomery
Somerset County Bridge No. D0105 on Great Road (CR 601), located south of Georgetown Franklin Turnpike (CR 518) and north of Cherry Valley Road, will be fully closed to through traffic for bridge repairs. The existing bridge will have various structural components repaired and rehabilitated. A detour route will be established using Georgetown Franklin Turnpike (CR518), US Route 206 and Cherry Valley Road, with a separate detour route for trucks and vehicles over 4 tons. Local access along Great Road (CR 601) will be maintained.
Great Road (CR 601) was closed at Bridge D0105 on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 for the start of bridge repair work. Full road closure and detour is scheduled for approximately 6 weeks, weather permitting.
Holiday update included Great Road (CR 601) being temporarily reopened, as of Friday, December 20, 2019 10:30AM. The County and the Contractor have staged the repair work so that the bridge can be reopened during the Contractor's holiday shutdown, until the work resumes on January 6, 2020. The bridge was closed again starting on Monday, January 6, 2020 for the continuation of work until all repairs are completed by mid-February, weather permitting.
[UPDATE 1-17-2020] All bridge repairs are complete -- roadway reopened as of Friday, January 17, 2020 8:30AM.
The purpose of this project is to restore the structural capacity of the bridge through rehabilitation of the existing substructure and superstructure. The project will include structural steel strengthening/repairs and concrete abutment repairs. Additionally, scour countermeasures will be installed and the deteriorated approach guide rail posts will be replaced.
This project is funded through County Capital for 2019 as part of a 3 bridge repair package (Contract #19006) which also includes rehabilitation work at Bridge E0304 Harlingen Road, Montgomery Township and Bridge H0812 Thompson Avenue (CR 525) in Bridgewater Township.
