PennDOT is inviting the public to view their online plans display for a project to replace four pipe culverts on multiple state routes in Erie County.

The project includes replacing the existing pipe culverts and completed some roadway reconstruction on Old State Road (Route 3014) in Washington Township, Route 474 (Jamestown Road) in Venango Township, Gulf Road (Route 1017) North East Township, and Robison Road (Route 4024) in Greene Township.

The pipes have experienced deterioration and deformation over time, which has decreased water flow and increased potential for clogging and damage to the roadway.

Work is expected to occur during the 2022 construction season.

Each road is expected to be closed for approximately two weeks during construction at each location. Detours will be posted.

  • Old State Road – between Draketown Road and Martin Road, 11.5-mile detour using Sharp Road (Route 3025), Route 6N, Edinboro Rd. (Route 699), and Oliver Road;
  • Route 474 – between Macedonia Road and Weeks Valley Road, 20.2-mile detour using Route 89, Route 6), and Route 426;
  • Gulf Road – between Kerr Road and Miller Road, 4.3-mile detour using Kerr Road (Route 1010) and Miller Road (Route 1012); and
  • Robison Road – between Footmill Road and Lake Pleasant Road, 6.6-mile detour using Route 97 (Route 197), Gore Road (Route 4028), Lake Pleasant Road (Route 1001), and Old Waterford Road.

The plans display for the Erie County Pipe Replacement Project, which will be held online only, includes a handout, digital plans, and an online comment form. It will be open until April 4, 2022 and can be accessed by visiting the PennDOT District 1 website,
