The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation Engineering District 10-0 has awarded a contract to WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff for the final design of the Lanes Mills Bridge in Snyder Township, Jefferson County, Pennsylvania.


The Lanes Mills Bridge, which carries SR 1008 over Rattlesnake Run in Snyder Township, is a single span concrete T-beam structure. The replacement bridge will be a composite, galvanized steel multi I-beam structure with integral abutments.
