COLUMBUS TOWNSHIP — A bridge replacement project on Route 426 will temporarily shut down a portion of highway during the spring and summer months of 2010.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation plans to replace Hare Creek bridge — which is located about a mile and a half east of the city limits in Columbus Township — because it is structurally deficient.
A PennDOT representative recently gave a presentation during a Columbus Township Supervisors’ meeting to inform residents about the specifications of the project.
Autumn Kelley, assistant environmental manager for PennDOT, informed audience members the bridge currently poses no danger to motorists, but it does have a limited remaining service life.
