Uniontown, Pa. - The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), Engineering District 12-0, invites the public to participate in a Virtual Plans Display for the Route 3001 (Wheeling Creek Road) Bridge Replacement Project located in Richhill Township, Greene County.

The proposed project includes removal of the existing concrete adjacent box beam bridge and abutments and replacing them with a prestressed concrete spread box beam bridge with integral abutments. Traffic control during the construction will utilize a full closure of the bridge.

The virtual plans display includes project information, anticipated design and construction schedules, and a location map. The virtual plans display can be accessed on the PennDOT website beginning Monday, December 13 and will be available through Wednesday, December 29.
