Public meeting set for Pittsfield bridge project

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is inviting the public to a meeting regarding the replacement of the Miles Run Road Bridge in Pittsfield Township.

The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the Pittsfield Township Building, 1370 Davey Hill Rd., Pittsfield.

The bridge is located on Miles Run Rd. (Township Road 388) over Miles Run in Pittsfield Township, just west of Rt. 6.

Work is expected to take place during the 2021 construction season and will require a detour, which will be posted using Route 6, Danielson Rd., and Laugher Hill Rd.

The existing steel I-beam bridge will be replaced with a single-span pre-stressed concrete spread box beam bridge on reinforced concrete integral abutments.

The existing bridge was built in 1960. It is classified as being in poor condition and is currently posted with an 11-ton weight limit. Approximately 100 vehicles a day use the bridge, on average. The bridge is owned and maintained by Pittsfield Township.

A digital version of the information available at the plans display can be found by visiting the PennDOT District 1 website at penndot.gov/District1, clicking on Public Meetings/Studies listed under the Resources heading, and choosing the box titled Warren County — Miles Run Road Run Bridge.

The plans display is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the project’s potential effect upon Cultural Resources pursuant to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation’s 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. The display is being held in a facility that complies with requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and it is accessible to individuals who have disabilities. Also, the project documents will be made available in alternative languages or formats if requested.

If you need translation/interpretation services or have special needs or have special concerns that require individual attention, contact Gregory W. Lindsay, Project Manager, no later than Nov. 15 at grlindsay@pa.gov or call (814) 678-7365.
