Dyberry, PA State Route 191
Leeward Construction, Inc. was contracted with PennDot to undertake repairs and rehabilitation to the bridge and road over Dyberry Creek.
On this busy stretch of state route 191, the best timing and best results were a must for the Leeward team. With PennDot’s support and resources, the rehabilitation project was a huge success.
Leeward Construction, Inc. was granted an income of over 1.2 million, which gave Mike Bonham and his crews the reign to complete the project with minimal delays. With funding secured, the Leeward crews and PennDot were able to begin rehabilitating the two-span l-beam bridge over Dyberry Creek. From the heavy traffic, weather, and time, more than the bridge required Leeward Construction Inc.’s attention. The crews set to work on constructing new retaining walls. This would improve the irrigation and give the new bridge an extended lifespan. Then, to not disrupt the flow of car and foot traffic, a temporary pedestrian bridge was installed. While pedestrians still had access to the route via detour, Leeward Construction, Inc. began the new sidewalks, curbing, and guiderail.
In addition to rehabilitating existing structures and constructing new supports, Leeward was faced with a new challenge: the demanding everyday flow of traffic. With PennDot’s help and expertise, new traffic patterns and detours were implemented during the project’s duration. Mike Bonham’s crew worked during the day—exposed to the detoured traffic—and into the night in order to complete the project.
