Heffley Raises Concerns with PennDOT Relating to Route 248 Bridge Project
10/31/2018
HARRISBURG – Expressing serious concerns over public safety and work delays relating to the replacement of the Route 248 bridge in Carbon County, Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon) sent a letter to Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Secretary Leslie Richards detailing his frustration with the project.

Work on the bridge is part of a $5.9 million contract awarded to Kriger Construction Inc. of Scranton to replace 13 bridges in three counties. PennDOT announced in July that the Route 248 bridge project was expected to be completed in November.

However, in the letter Heffley asks why it appears no work has been done in months, “The fact that the contractor has left the worksite unchanged for the last four months of the year in which construction can occur, is unsettling to say the least.”

Heffley went on to list several safety concerns he has with the project during the upcoming months and asked for an explanation why its completion has been delayed.

“Accountability and transparency have been the self-proclaimed hallmarks of Gov. Wolf’s tenure over the Commonwealth,” he wrote in the letter. “Today, I call on PennDOT to address these concerns, and to ensure those within the district that their state departments still work for them, the people.”

A copy of Heffley’s letter is attached.
