MIFFLINTOWN - Drivers will encounter a new traffic pattern today on the state Route 35, Juniata River Bridge job.
Traffic travelling on Route 35 will be moved onto the new railroad bridge, the bridge ramp and then onto Juniata Street in Mifflin Borough.
This traffic pattern change is necessary so that crews can begin work on the new Juniata Street box culvert. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation expects this traffic pattern to be in place through late November.
The Route 35 Juniata River bridge project began in summer 2011 and will be completed in 2013. Work includes a new traffic bridge on a re-aligned Route 35, a new bridge over the railroad, a new pedestrian bridge in the location of the current traffic bridge, a roundabout at the intersection of Routes 3002 and 35, and improvements to the Route 3002/3005 intersection.
New Enterprise Stone and Lime Co. Inc. is the contractor on this $16 million job.
