PennDOT Announces Online Plans Display for Route 3018 in Martic Township, Lancaster County


LANCASTER COUNTY, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has invited the public to an online plans display regarding the Route 3018 (Martic Heights Drive) bridge replacement project in Martic Township, Lancaster County. The project involves replacing the existing bridge carrying Martic Heights Drive over a Tributary to Tucquan Creek approximately 0.25 miles west of the Village of Mount Nebo. The purpose of this project is to address deterioration of the bridge and provide continued safe and efficient crossing over the stream.

PennDOT reports that the project scope consists of replacing the existing 101-year-old single-span reinforced concrete slab structure with a single cell prestressed concrete box culvert bridge. New approach pavement, rock scour protection, drainage upgrades, and guide rail installation will also be included in the project. The total paving width will be 28 feet to accommodate two 10-foot-wide lanes and two 4-foot-wide shoulders. The bridge will be closed to traffic for approximately 3 months during construction. The proposed detour route will use Route 3019 (Red Hill Road) to Route 324 (Marticville Road) to Route 3017 (River Road).
