by Geoff Fox

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will be holding a public meeting and plans display for the bridge on U.S. 522 (Great Cove Road) over White Oak Run on Monday, August 15, from 6-7 p.m. at the Bethel Township Municipal Building, 289 Long Hollow Road, in Warfordsburg.

The project would replace the bridge and consist of a box culvert replacement, minor roadway approach paving, and upgrading guide rails to meet current standards.

Intersection sight distance improvements are also proposed at the intersection of U.S. 522 (Great Cove Road) and Bethel Church Road, which includes a layback of the existing slope and intersection re-alignment.

PennDOT said there would be a detour implemented during construction.

The purpose of the meeting is to provide the public an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed project.

Representatives from PennDOT will be available to answer questions and receive comments regarding the project. The comments of all individuals, groups or organizations are welcome.

Anyone with knowledge of historic resources in the project area should attend the meeting.

The meeting location, the Bethel Township Municipal Building, is accessible to persons with disabilities and any person who would require special aid or additional information regarding the meeting may contact the project manager, Paul A. Hook, P .E., by phone at 814-317-3071 or by email at [email protected].
