Folks will soon have the chance to look at plans and share their thoughts on a replacement project for the Scrubgrass Road Bridge in Mercer County.

During the virtual meeting, which will be held April 10, participants will be able to view a handout, digital plans for the project, and get access to an online comment form to share and questions or concerns they may have with the project.

The existing steel I-beam bridge was built in 1939 and reconstructed in 1975. It is classified as poor condition and is posted with a 30-ton weight limit. About 500 vehicles a day use the bridge, on average, according to PennDOT.

The project includes the removal and replacement of the existing structure for a new concrete bridge, minor paving work and repairs to the roadway shoulders will also be included.

Construction is expected to begin during the 2025 construction season.

A detour will be required during construction and is expected to be in place for approximately four months. The proposed 6-mile detour route will be posted using Route 173, Millbrook Road (Route 2022), and Centertown Road.

Those interested will be able to access the meeting once its live here.
