PennDOT - District 3 News: New Data Indicates CSVT Northern Section is Improving Traffic in Northcentral PA
:cheers:

It's almost hard to believe that there are still 800 trucks per day using old PA 147 through Northumberland, although I suppose a lot of those are traveling to/from Sunbury, so that number will likely go down even further once the southern section (PA 61 connector) is open.

Sunbury in general is an underrated factor in the CSVT project, with a population of 10k that is almost exclusively forced through Northumberland or Shamokin Dam to drive anywhere of significance.

Finally, work is beginning on the CSVT bridge over Grangers Rd, the first of nine bridges as part of the second CSVT contract which will also include four noise barriers: https://www.csvt.com/resources/pdfs/construction-updates/CSVT_press_release_02_02_24.pdf

The nine bridges are as follows:

CSVT over Mill Rd
CSVT over Attig Rd
CSVT over Park/Fisher Rd
CSVT over Stetler Ave
CSVT over 11th Ave
CSVT over PA 61 Connector
Cortland Ave over PA 61 Connector
PA 61 Connector over ramps to US 11/Future Bus 15
CSVT over Grangers Rd

The Sunbury Rd bridge over CSVT was the only bridge in the first contract, and it was completed and reopened to traffic last fall.

CSVT earthwork is progressing nicely, via another video update from Brian's Susquehanna Thruway Project here.

I snipped some photos for those that may not want to watch the full 15 minute video. All photos credit to Brian Benfer, owner of Brian's Susquehanna Thruway Project.
