PennDOT Announces Plans Display for PA 419 Culvert Project in Berks County

by Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT)

Nov 21, 2022

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to participate in a virtual plans display for a project to replace a culvert over Mill Creek on PA 419 in Tulpehocken Township, Berks County.

The purpose of the plans display is to provide details and collect community comments regarding the proposed transportation project. The plans display will include project features and the anticipated construction schedule. Proposed improvements consist of the replacement of the existing single-span concrete arch culvert with a proposed single-span pre-cast concrete box culvert. Proposed work will also include reconstructing the roadway approaches, updating guide rail, and all associated earth work.

All individuals who view the displays showing the proposed improvements are encouraged to offer comments via a downloadable survey form. Individuals or groups with a demonstrated interest within the project limits, surrounding businesses, and local property owners are encouraged to participate.

PennDOT invites community members to provide public input for the project. To access the webpage, visit click on the Public Meetings link under the District Links heading, pick the Berks County box, and then choose the PA 419 Section 01B Culvert Replacement project tile. The digital version of the information will be available to view online until December 5, 2022.

The purpose of the plans display is to introduce the project and solicit public input, questions, or concerns regarding the project. It is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the project’s potential effect upon Cultural Resources pursuant to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation’s 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

The project documents can be made available in alternative languages or formats if requested.
