SR 2047 Flaugherty Creek Bridge Rehabilitation

The SR 2047 (U.S. 219 Business) Bridge over Flaugherty Creek is a stone masonry arch bridge listed on Pennsylvania’s Historic Bridge Inventory, and was deemed structurally deficient after 100 years of wear and tear from exposure to the elements and heavy traffic volume. The bridge is one of the few stone masonry arch bridges in the area, so to ensure the rehabilitation was done with the utmost care and attention to detail, the client needed a firm with extensive knowledge and experience regarding historic bridge restorations to lead the project.

RETTEW worked to rehabilitate this bridge, integrating both modern functionality and practicality while maintaining the historic aesthetic appearance of the original structure and improving nearby intersections. Our team proposed to use a half-width construction method with temporary traffic signals to ease congestion and minimize community impact during construction in this high-traffic, urban setting. In the end, through the completion of this project, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation satisfied all permitting agencies and economically designed a solution for this historic structure rehabilitation.
