Construction Continues on Pike County Bridge Project

SR 2006 (Log Tavern Road) Bridge to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership

Dunmore, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project continues in Pike County soon, with the reconstruction of a bridge in Dingman Township.

SR 2006 (Log Tavern Road) spans Dwarfkill Creek north of Dingmans Turnpike on Route 739. During construction, drivers will encounter one-lane of alternating traffic in each direction controlled by temporary traffic signals. The bridge (JV-143) is scheduled to begin the week of August 22, and is expected to be complete by December. The work will be performed by Clearwater Construction. The crossing was built in 1949 and averages over 3800 vehicles a day.

Replacing the bridge will remove the current weight limit postings, and will allow PennDOT to remove it from Pike County’s structurally deficient list.

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.

This bridge replacement is part of the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, a Public-Private Partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP) under which PWKP will finance, design, replace and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
