Bassett Engineering is excited to partake in this year’s National Small Business Week, which is celebrated from May 1st – to the 7th! The week is to celebrate more than 32 million small businesses that employ almost half of America’s workforce and to celebrate their enormous contributions to American life and prosperity.
Bassett Engineering has been a small business for over 25 years, with the company founded by Britt Bassett in 1996. Over that time, Bassett Engineering has had the opportunity to serve many municipalities, counties, businesses, and individuals throughout Pennsylvania. Bassett will continue to provide the highest quality municipal and environmental engineering consulting service where we practice in the future.
Bassett Engineering has also been certified by PennDOT as an SBE (Small Business Enterprise) in the state of Pennsylvania. The SBE is designed to facilitate greater participation of small businesses in transportation-related procurements, however, the certification carries weight across all disciplines.
Early this week was lift day for the first project in the Lycoming County Bridge Bundling Program: Bundle 2. Precast Concrete Arch Structures were set on Smith Road in Franklin Township. Arch sections that were set included six precast concrete arch sections, two headwalls, and five wingwall sections. Wolyniec Construction and Contech set the arches for the site.

Bassett Engineering was honored to participate in the Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Lycoming County Bridge Bundling Program. Bundle 2 this week. The program in total involves the repair and replacement of seventeen locally owned bridges across Lycoming County. The Lycoming County Commissioners and County Transportation Planning and Development staff, Bassett Engineering, and the local municipal bridge owners gathered in Loyalsock Township to kick off the construction of Bundle 2.
Bundle 2 consists entirely of five (5) bridges, all of which are precast concrete structures. Concrete Box culverts will be installed at Sheridan Street – Loyalsock Township and at Wilson Street – Jersey Shore Borough. Concrete Arches will be installed at Smith Road – Franklin Township, Valley Road – Susquehanna Township, and Bill Sones Road – Moreland Township. All of the new concrete structures replace older structurally deficient existing structures and will improve storm hydraulics, reduce the risk of flooding during heavy rains and provide a long lifespan solution at each site.
The construction contract for the bundle was awarded to Wolyniec Construction Inc. and is currently underway. All five structures will be completed this year with the substantial completion of the project expected to be in late fall.
