Old Stage Rd. Bridge replacement
OLD STAGE BRIDGE REPLACEMENT
This project is to replace the superstructure of Old Stage Road bridge.
The Old Stage Road bridge is located 3/4 mile north of Mt. Holly Road in Spring Valley Township, passing over Bear Run.
The Old Stage Road bridge is currently rated at a 3 and has been closed since 2015.
This project consists of replacement of the superstructure with a galvanized steel plate girder with a composite concrete deck (not fracture critical) with minimal approach work.
The 140 foot long Old Stage Road bridge was built in 2000 but closed in 2015 due to its poor condition. It was built as a single span weathering steel truss (fracture critical) bridge.
