During the fall months, crews will start the demolition of the old eastbound Route 7 lanes on the Difficult Run bridge. Work will be ongoing through the fall and winter months to prepare this area for the construction of the new bridge over Difficult Run.
Other work starting this fall in the Colvin Run/Difficult Run area includes construction of the articulated block channel for the relocation of the Colvin Run stream and Phase II construction of the box culvert under Carpers Farm Way. Later this year, following completion of the box culvert and new stream channel, Colvin Run stream will be diverted into the relocated channel. Lane closures may occur through this area in support of the work.
Please note that on Tuesday, Nov. 3 (Election Day), the project will have no scheduled lane closures along the corridor.
