On Monday, June 27, a PennDOT bridge crew in Columbia County will begin a bridge replacement project on T-715 (Green Creek Road) in Jackson Township.
The existing 23 foot-long T-beam bridge, which spans Green Creek, was built in 1934. It will be replaced by a precast box culvert.
Green Creek Road will be closed between T-614 (Youngs Hill Road) and T-616 (Twin Pond Road). A detour will be in effect using Route 4030 (Derrs Road),
Route 4039 (Austin Trail), T-710 (Greasyville Hollow Road), and T-725 (Mendenhall Hill Road).
This project is expected to last about two months, weather permitting.
