CSVT reaches another milestone

September 18, 2018

The fourth and final bidding on the northern section of the Central Susquehanna Valley Thruway took place last week, and we thought this would be a good time for an update on the project.

The CSVT is a rare new capacity project funded by Act 89 of 2013. The vast majority of construction projects made possible by the funding act are focused on restoring existing bridges and highways.

The paving for the project will begin next year, with completion set for 2022. Completion for the southern section is up in the air due to the need to re-route a section of the thruway to avoid building it over fly ash basins.

Despite the record-setting rainfall this construction season, PennDOT reports that construction of the bridge spanning the Susquehanna has fallen behind only by two to three weeks. The Union County side of the bridge is expected to be completed by the end of October, except for the paving.

A four-lane, 13-mile limited access highway will separate trucks and through traffic from local traffic, reducing congestion, improving safety and accommodating economic growth.

Our friends at the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission are in the process of updating the transportation and development plan for the 10-county region.

As part of that, they’ve devised a survey to solicit input from people in that region. If you live or work in the region, and you have some thoughts about matters that could impact the region, they would love to know what you think.

“Most E-motion readers are familiar with the role that planning plays in transportation and development, so we hope that those who live or work in the region will offer their insights,” said PHIA Managing Director Jason Wagner.
