SEI Lunchtime Webinar - Rehabilitation of Reading's Historic Penn Street Bridge (1 PDH)

Thursday, October 15, 2020 - 12:00pm

The Penn Street Bridge, constructed in 1913, is a 14-span historic bridge that serves as a vital link between SR 422 and downtown Reading, Berks County, for 22,000 daily commuters while spanning over a railroad, city street, college campus, trail, utility access road, and the Schuylkill River. This “Gateway to Reading” serves as a key connection between the Reading and West Reading communities, making the bridge crucial to the region’s economic vitality. When PennDOT undertook a $42 million rehabilitation project, maintaining both vehicular and pedestrian access during the entire construction process was essential. This project focused on the details of restoring the bridge to its former glory, bringing the bridge up to current standards, and extend the life of the bridge while maintaining access for all modes of transportation.
