The project will include raising the vertical clearances of the bridge to meet current standards over interstates. It will also include guiderail and drainage updates.

Work is expected to occur during the 2025 construction season.

A detour will be required during the time of construction and is expected to be in place for about four months. The proposed 3-mile detour route will be posted using Knowledge Parkway, Station Road (SR 290), Kuhl Road and Harborgreene Road.

The plans display for the Jordan Road Bridge Project, which will be held online only, includes a handout, digital plans, and an online comment form. It will be open until Nov. 10, 2023, and can be accessed by visiting the PennDOT District 1 website.
