Under a PADEP Emergency Permit, LSSE provided engineering services which included a design program for the removal of two existing stream crossings; construction of a pre-cast concrete wall in three separate locations; relocation of approximately 560 feet of stream channel with the roadway; and placement of rip-rap bank stabilization along the banks of the stream. Work also included removal of a steel plate bridge.
