The project is in the early design phase.Beckman Road Bridge Feasibility Study 


Project Overview

As part of the Interstate 90 Sections 4 and 5 Reconstruction Project, PennDOT is conducting a feasibility study of the bridge that carries Beckman Road over Interstate 90 in Girard Township, Erie County.

Upon further review of the data collected about the bridge and traffic patterns in the area, as well as feedback gathered from the public and refined cost estimates for various alternatives, PennDOT has determined that the construction project will include replacing the bridge.

Work is expected to occur during the 2027 construction season.

The existing Beckman Road bridge is a four-span simple/continuous rolled steel I-beam bridge built in 1959. It is classified as fair condition and is used by approximately 125 vehicles a day on average. 

The current bridge has a clearance of less than 14 feet over the westbound lanes and a 16-foot clearance over the eastbound lanes. The new structure will increase the clearance to meet current design standards.

The Interstate 90 Sections 4 and 5 Reconstruction Project will include reconstruction of approximately 7.5 miles of I-90 from just east of Exit 9 (Route 18, Girard/Platea) to just east of Exit 18 (Route 832/Sterrettania Road, Presque Isle State Park).
