Project Overview​​

This project is to replace the bridge that carries Forrester Road over Cool Spring Creek in Fairview Township, Mercer County.

The bridge is located on Forrester Road (Route 2017) between the intersection with Airport Road and the intersection with Williamson Road.

The project will include replacing the bridge with a precast concrete bridge. Work will also include minor paving near the bridge and updated guiderail and pavement markings. 

Work is expected to occur in 2025 construction season.

The existing steel I-beam single-span bridge was built in 1950. It is classified as poor condition. Approximately 500 vehicles a day use the bridge, on average. 

Traffic Impacts
