Pine Creek Historic Lenticular Through Truss Bridge Rehabilitation
Pine Creek Bridge, Lycoming County, PA | PENNDOT
This project involves final design and construction phase services for the rehabilitation of a 287' wrought iron, single-span lenticular through truss bridge. The bridge, designed in the highly decorative Warren pattern, was listed on the National Register of Historic places in June of 1988. The Pine Creek Bridge is one of only about 50 remaining lenticular truss bridges in the US, and is one of the longest single span bridges of its kind. As such, SHPO coordination played an important role in this project.
The rehabilitation of this bridge includes replacement of the entire floor system, longitudinal girders, vertical hangers, low chord, pins and ornamental end posts. Approximately 825' of approach roadway is also being reconstructed, involving vertical and horizontal realignment, intersection reconstruction, and drainage improvements. Additional tasks include erosion and sediment control, drainage, right-of-way, and environmental permitting.
