McCONNELLSBURG - Preparations are underway for replacing eight Fulton County bridges under Pennsylvania’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.

The Great Cove Road (U.S. 522) bridge over Big Cove Creek is scheduled to undergo construction starting in mid-June. Traffic will be restricted to a single lane controlled with temporary traffic signals. Construction will take about five months to complete. A more detailed construction schedule will be released closer to start of construction. The bridge averages 2,507 vehicles a day.

Associations representing state departments of transportation, legislatures and the nation's governors worked this month to head off a Senate appropriations provision that could potentially take away billions of dollars in already-authorized highway funds.

Donald Trump sounds like a Democrat when he says making America great again will require a huge federal investment in the nation’s infrastructure.

The White House is looking to cities for a transportation "moonshot" that will help stave off the effects of meager federal funding, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said Wednesday in Portland.

Foxx, the former mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, was in town during a tour of cities competing for a $40 million "Smart Cities Challenge" grant, for which Portland is a finalist. The grant will fund one city's efforts to integrate technology in its transportation network.



This project speaks volumes about the ability of SAI Consulting Engineers, Inc. to meet the Department's demands at a short notice.  Due to special funding becoming available, SAI was asked in January 2008 to move the letting from January 2009 to May 2008, which they completed successfully.
