About the Project

This project replaced the structurally deficient Lee Highway (Route 29) bridge over Little Rocky Run and widened it to three lanes in each direction. It includes a ten-foot trail on the south side of the bridge, and a five-foot sidewalk to the north.

The old bridge was built in 1932 and was in overall poor condition, with a sufficiency rating of 20.9 on a scale of 0 (poor) to 100 (very good). The sufficiency ratings developed by the Federal Highway Administration serve as a prioritization tool to allocate funds. The rating considers adequacy, whether the bridge is functionally obsolete, and the service level provided to the public.

The bridge carries approximately 36,000 vehicles per day.


This project was completed in October 2015.

Southbound Route 29 traffic was shifted to the newly constructed southbound bridge and traffic in its permanent configuration in August 2015. 

Southbound traffic was shifted onto the new northbound bridge in March 2015. 

Northbound traffic was shifted onto the new bridge in January 2015.


Estimated project cost

Engineering of roadway plans: $1 million
Right of way acquisition, relocation assistance and utility relocation: $3 million
Construction: $13.6 million
Total: $17.6 million

This project was financed with federal funds.
