College Township bridge replacement project postponed

A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation project to replace the bridge near the intersection of East Branch Road and Country Club Road in College Township has been postponed until next year.

According to township Manager Adam Brumbaugh, PennDOT took bids earlier this month and received only one “exceptionally high” bid. The bid was high due to the availability of some of the products used in construction, he said.

PennDOT intends to send the project out to bid again this year, he said, but the project will be delayed until 2017.
