Work on the New Holland Road Bridge, spanning Angelica Creek in Cumru Township, Berks County, is scheduled to begin this month as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of March 26 and be complete in early June. In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change, according to a report in BCTV.
The bridge is referred to as JV-168 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership between the state’s transportation agency and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years.
