Last week Bassett Engineering presented the final design of the Fox Road Bridge Replacement to the public at a meeting held by Tunkhannock Township. Neighbors, residents, and other interested groups weighed in on the project regarding access, detours and construction.
Bassett Engineering designed the bridge replacement for Tunkhannock Township, with construction planned to begin in spring 2021. The project is funded by both PennDOT and DCED Multimodal Transportation Fund grants. The existing 96-foot two span steel I-beam bridge will be replaced with a 106-foot single span prestressed concrete bulb-tee bridge offering significant geometric, hydraulic, and safety improvements. The residents and businesses who use the road will be excited for the elimination of the slippery open steel grate deck and improvement of the approaches to the bridge.
