PennDOT's has online display for the Bridge Replacement Project over Inlet to Finn Swamp in Paupack

WAYNE COUNTY – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to a plans display regarding the SR 0590, Section 651, Bridge Replacement Project over Inlet to Finn Swamp. This plans display will be held online, and plans will be displayed for public viewing (if possible while following all COVID-19 safety protocols) at the Paupack Township municipal building.

The purpose of the project is to provide safe and efficient access across the stream with a structure that meets current design standards.

The project consists of the replacement of the existing single span, corrugated metal pipe-arch culvert with a single span, reinforced concrete box culvert with a clear roadway width of 38'-0" feet. The new structure will be placed along the existing roadway alignment.

During construction, traffic will be diverted onto a single-lane temporary roadway around the project area. This temporary roadway will be controlled by temporary traffic signals alternating one-way traffic along each direction of SR 0590. Access to adjacent driveways will be maintained at all times. The temporary roadway will be in place for approximately one to two months depending on weather conditions during construction. A detour is not anticipated for this project.

It is anticipated that construction will begin in the Spring/Summer of 2023 and will be complete by the Fall of 2023.

The plans display will be held online and will be available from April 5 to April 19. Online information, including proposed temporary roadway, detailed project information, and comment form, can be found by visiting the following PennDOT District 4-0 website:
