1. Farmdale-Ferndale Storm Sewer Improvements

    West Hempfield Township was looking to pave the streets in one of its neighborhoods as part of a capital improvement project.

RETTEW worked with the Township to analyze the existing pavement, curbing, and stormwater facilities…

  2. 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…

  3. Mill Road and Horseshoe Trail Road Bridges Rehabilitation

    Two small bridges in West Cocalico Township, one over Little Cocalico Creek and one over a tributary to Cocalico Creek, were deteriorating and needed repairs. Horseshoe Trail Road Bridge was previously closed because of collapsed abutments, and Mill Road Bridge was restricted by a steel plate over a portion of the failed deck. These failing…

  4. Pequea #5 Bridge

    The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) identified the existing three-span Pequea #5 Bridge as structurally deficient, so Lancaster County set out to replace it and concurrently address other important public concerns.

  6. West College Avenue Improvements

    College Avenue in Elizabethtown Borough was in need of more efficient transportation infrastructure to decrease traffic congestion and hazards as well as improve traffic flow.

  7. Newville Road Bridge Replacement

    West Donegal Township closed Newville Road Bridge in the 1990s because of excessive corrosion in its asphalt-filled metal deck pans. After receiving federal funding administered through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) for the project, the Township selected RETTEW to develop a new bridge and approach roadway that met both PennDOT and Amtrak design criteria….

  8. Harrison County Road 51 Bridge Replacement

    Closed to traffic for more than three years following an inspection that deemed it unsafe, residents and community members of German Township had to avoid the Harrison County Road 51 Bridge and travel miles out of their way to get to their homes, schools, and businesses. The detour not only delayed emergency responders to the…

    Built in 1916 as a one-lane, reinforced-concrete tied-arch structure carrying Auction Road over Big Chiques Creek in Penn and Rapho Townships, Auction Road Bridge was one of only four reinforced-concrete through-arch-style bridges remaining in the commonwealth eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. However, the historically significant structure was no longer able…
