Culvert Replacement Project to Begin on Route 641 in Cumberland County

Traffic will be restricted to a single lane controlled by temporary signals.

Harrisburg, PA The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that a culvert replacement project is set to begin on Route 641 in Cumberland County. The bridge is located between Kough Road and Springfield Avenue in N. Newton Township and Newville Borough.

Weather permitting, this project will begin Monday, July 24. The project will be completed in phases. The structure will be restricted to a single lane with traffic signals allowing alternating directions of traffic through the work zone. This traffic control condition will be in place for up to 184 days.

This project consists of the replacement of an existing culvert with a precast box culvert, the construction of a retaining wall, and other miscellaneous construction.

Lobar Site Development, Inc., of Dillsburg, PA, is the contractor on this $1,474,943 project.

All work is expected to be completed by November 19, 2024.

Travelers are reminded to be alert for these operations, to obey work zone signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through work zones for their safety as well as for the safety of the road crews.
