This project will replace the weight-restricted (15 tons) one-lane Springvale Road (Route 674) bridge over Piney Run with a two-lane bridge. The bridge was built in 1965 and rehabilitated in 2000.

Two options are being considered for the project:

  • Widening the bridge to two lanes with two four-foot-wide shoulders.
  • Widening the bridge to two lanes separated by raised/splitter island medians with two two-foot-wide shoulders.

The opening beneath the bridge will also be increased to better withstand flooding.

The bridge averages 4,700 vehicles a day.

The project is financed with state funding. Estimated project costs continue to be developed as the proposed improvements and preliminary design are refined.

Benefits 

The project aims to improve safety.
