​​​McKinley Avenue Bridge Replacement Project

McKinley Ave Bridge in Mercer Borough​​​

Project Overview

This is a project to replace the bridge that carries McKinley Avenue over Munnell Run in Mercer Borough, Mercer County.

The proposed new is a steel superstructure with a reinforced concrete deck on concrete abutments. Work will also include a new concrete sidewalk on the west side of the roadway to facilitate pedestrian traffic, in particular access for the employees and visitors to Imperial Systems from the parking lot on the south side of Munnell Run.  ​

The existing I-beam stringer bridge was built in 1972. It is classified as poor condition and is limited to one lane traffic. Approximately 300 vehicles a day use the bridge, on average. It is owned by Mercer Borough.​

​Traffic Impacts

Work is expected to occur in two phases during the 2025 construction season to allow for the roadway to remain open during the construction process. Phase 1 includes replacement of the east side of the bridge and Phase 2 involves replacement of the west side of the bridge and construction of a new sidewalk.

Traffic will be controlled by use of concrete barriers and flaggers, when necessary.
