HARRISBURG – State Rep. Bryan Cutler (R-Peach Bottom) announced that the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) met and approved a $135,000 grant to replace Cherry Hill Road Bridge in Eden Township.
The bridge, which is near the intersection of Pumping Station Road and crosses Bowery Rune, is structurally deficient. The galvanized metal culverts underneath the structure are deteriorating.
“One of the most critical investments to be made in the Commonwealth is maintenance of our transportation system. Continually improving our roads and bridges to preserve the safety of motorists in Pennsylvania is a core function of our government,” Cutler said.
With the grant money, the township will replace it with a new bridge and build concrete wing walls to channel water through the structure. Reconstruction will help to eliminate contamination from dirt, gravel and debris falling from the deteriorating structure and will also solve the current safety issue.
In total, the bridge replacement costs $192,582.
The grant is funded through Act 89 of 2013. The Transportation Plan invests $2.3 billion into transportation maintenance, as well as highway and bridge capital projects.
The CFA was established as an independent agency of the Commonwealth and holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
