  4. SR 0115 Widening and Intersection Improvements

    The Pocono Raceway, a major tourist attraction, draws huge crowds of motorsports fans. During special events, traffic is restricted to one lane on SR 0115, creating problems for local residents and obstructing emergency vehicles. The intersection of SR 0115 and SR 0903 is unconventional and has become a high-crash area. The area is environmentally sensitive,…

  5. Ashmead Road Bridge Replacement

    This existing 58-foot-long steel I-beam bridge in Cheltenham Township was structurally deficient and needed to be replaced because of excessive deterioration. In fact, throughout the course of designing the new bridge, numerous emergency repairs were needed to keep the bridge in service. The bridge is in a high-traffic area prone to flooding, so extra caution…

  9. South Middleton Township Bridge Asset Management Program

    Under National Bridge Inspection Standards, only bridges with spans greater than 20 feet are required to be inspected every two years. When South Middleton Township suspected an issue with a weight-restricted bridge spanning under 20 feet, they had no recent inspection on which to rely. RETTEW completed a bridge inspection for the Township and revealed…

  10. PennDOT Publication 783 – Environmental Permitting Handbook

    The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) needed their guidelines for preparing waterway and environmental permits organized efficiently to improve the permitting process. In addition, guidelines for preparing earth disturbance and waterway permits were either absent or not easily found. This resulted in inconsistent permit applications, technical deficiency letters from permitting agencies, and missed project schedules….
