Bridge project plans

PennDOT has posted an online plans display for the project that will replace the bridge that carries Cornish Hill Rd. over Pine Valley Brook in Columbus Twp. The bridge is located between the intersection with Humphrey’s Corners Road and the intersection with Pine Valley Road. The project includes the replacement of the upper portion of the existing bridge. Work will also include minor paving near the bridge and updates to drainage and roadway shoulders. No right-of-way acquisition is anticipated. Work is expected to occur during the 2025 construction season. A detour will be required during construction and is expected to be in place for approximately four months. The proposed 2.7-mile detour route will be posted using Humphrey’s Corners Road and Pine Valley Road. The existing concrete adjacent box beam bridge was built in 1987. It is classified as poor condition. Approximately 225 vehicles a day use the bridge, on average.
