PITTSTON — Standing below the Water Street Bridge in Pittston, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey made a plea for continued funding to combat the decline of hundreds of structurally deficient bridges in the state.

“We still don’t have a transportation bill to carry us into the future,” Mr. Casey said Tuesday afternoon. “These are the bridges carrying schoolchildren … they are transportation arteries we all use.”

When two trains filled with dignitaries traversed the new Tilikum Crossing over the Willamette River on Friday, May 15, they were embarking on the official inaugural trip for the MAX Orange Line.

But this celebratory event also could be viewed as an ending of sorts. There’s a real danger the Orange Line will be remembered as the last big transportation project to be completed in the Portland area for years to come.

Pennsylvania ranks worst in the country for structurally deficient rural bridges, according to a report released by the Road Information Program (TRIP).

The report called “Rural Connections: Challenges and Opportunities in America’s Heartland,” found that the nation’s rural transportation system is in need of improvements to roads and bridges, reducing high crash rates, and increasing connectivity and capacity. 



Design team completed work order on time and within budget. SAI did an excellent job coordinating with PHMC, DEP, PAFBC and Jefferson County Conservation District.
