PennDOT Announces Posting of Virtual Plans for Highway 426 Bridge Project in Spring Creek Township, Warren County

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to view an online posting of plans for a proposed bridge replacement that carries Route 426 (Spring Creek Corry Road) over Shirley Run in Spring Creek Township, Warren County.

The bridge is located on Spring Creek Corry Road approximately 4.5 miles north of the intersection with Highway 27.

The project will involve the replacement of the existing single span reinforced concrete structure with a precast culvert. The work will also include new driveways and updated guide rail and pavement markings.

Work is expected to take place during the 2024 construction season.

A detour will be required during construction and is expected to be in place for approximately five weeks. The proposed 21.8 mile detour route will be posted using Routes 27 and 6.

The existing reinforced concrete structure was built in 1935. It is classified as being in poor condition. About 850 vehicles per day use the bridge, on average.

The posting of plans for the Highway 426 Bridge Replacement Project, which will be held online only, includes a document, digital plans and an online feedback form. It will be open until November 2, 2022 and can be accessed by visiting the PennDOT District 1 website,

Those unable to access information online can provide feedback by contacting PennDOT Project Manager Mitchell Fabry at [email protected] or 814-678-7353.

The purpose of posting the plans is to present the project and to receive comments from the public regarding any questions or concerns regarding the project. This is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the potential effect of the project on cultural resources in accordance with the Historic Preservation Advisory Council’s 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

Project documents will be made available in other languages ​​or formats upon request. If you require translation/interpretation services or have special needs or concerns that require individual attention, contact Mitchell Fabry, PennDOT Project Manager at [email protected] or 814-678- 7353.
