PennDOT: Mountain Road bridge project

The public can check out an online plan display of the Mountain Road bridge replacement project on the Route 3011, planned by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. The bridge runs over Buck Run Creek about 500 feet from the intersection with Route 16.

The Mountain Road bridge project addresses structural deficiencies of the bridge. It will provide continued safe and efficient crossing of Mountain Road over Buck Run, PennDOT said.

The 80-year-old reinforced concrete slab bridge will be replaced with a precast reinforced concrete box culvert. The bridge’s approach pavement will be replaced, rock scour protected, and guide rails will be updated. The bridge width will be very close to the existing width and will include two 11-foot lanes and 4-foot shoulders.

The bridge will close for about two months to all traffic during the construction. The proposed detour route will use Route 16, Route 3009 (Oregon Street), Route 416, T-436 (Landis Drive) and Route 75.

The project is currently in the design phase. Construction will probably take place in the 2022 construction season.

Plans will only be available online, in accordance with Governor Wolf’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts. A digital version of the information will be available to view online for 30 days.

How to participate

Information, including roadway and bridge plans and an interactive comment form, can be found on PennDOT District 8’s website. Click on Public Meetings listed under the Resources heading; and choose the Franklin County box then the tile marked Mountain Road Over Buck Run.   


The purpose of the plans display is to introduce the project and receive public input, including questions or concerns. It is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the project’s potential effect upon Cultural Resources pursuant to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation’s 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

The project documents are available in alternative languages or formats if requested. If you need translation/interpretation services or have special needs or have special concerns that require individual attention, contact Christopher McKee, PennDOT Project Manager, at or 717-705-6179.
