Route 10 Bridge over Tributary to Conestoga Creek

The PA 10 project involves the superstructure replacement of a single span steel beam structure with open grid deck carrying PA 10 (Morgantown Road) over a Tributary to Conestoga Creek in Caernarvon Township & New Morgan Borough, Berks County. 

The existing superstructure will be replaced with steel beam pre-cast concrete deck modules supported on the existing concrete wall abutments. Roadway improvements include full depth reconstruction on the bridge approaches, guiderail upgrades, updated signage, and miscellaneous other improvements. Both a car detour and truck detour will be in place for approximately 10 days. The project will use Accelerated Bridge Construction techniques.

The posted speed limit for this section of PA 10 is 45 mph and the average daily traffic volume is 5,916 vehicles.

Construction work is estimated to start in the spring of 2024 and be completed in mid-summer 2025. The estimated construction cost is between $1.4 million and $1.6 million.

This online plans display includes digital picture boards and an online comment form available to the public until December 19, 2022.

The purpose of the plans display is to introduce the project and receive public input regarding any questions or concerns with the project. It is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the project's potential effect upon cultural resources pursuant to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation's 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
