PennDOT Announces Virtual Plans Display for Porterfield Road over Straight Run in Banks Township, Indiana County

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to view plans regarding the Straight Run Bridge #2 replacement project from January 18 to February 1, 2021.

This project involves the replacement of the bridge that carries State Route 1046 (Porterfield Road) over Straight Run in Banks Township, Indiana County. The existing structure consists of a single-span 52-foot-long steel I-beam bridge with an open grate steel deck that will be replaced on the same alignment with a single-span steel I-beam bridge with a concrete deck. Traffic will be detoured during the replacement of the structure using state roads. 

The proposed structure will have a curb-to-curb width of 25 feet consisting of two 10-foot-wide travel lanes with a 2-foot-wide shoulder on each side.  Additional work to be completed will include guide rail updates, approach pavement replacement, new signing and pavement markings, intersection sight improvements and utility relocations.

Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2023 and take six months to complete.

In accordance with Governor Wolf’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts, the plans display will be held online only.  The purpose of the plans display for this bridge replacement project is to share preliminary information on the project’s status, schedule, design and right-of-way acquisition. PennDOT representatives along with design consultants will be available to answer questions.
