Helm Applauds PennDOT for Addressing Rockslide Concerns Along Route 147 in Upper Dauphin County
2/5/2015
HARRISBURG – Rep. Sue Helm (R-Dauphin) is applauding the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) for beginning a project to address rockslide concerns along Route 147 in upper Dauphin County.
 
“My job as a representative is to protect the people of my district. I see this rockfall as a definite danger,” said Helm. “When I was first elected in 2006, one of the first things I did was contact PennDOT and ask them to clear the rocks that were behind the netting and protruding through the netting. PennDOT acted immediately to remove the rocks, but it was not too long before more rocks had fallen and they were protruding again. PennDOT at that point realized this job was too big for their equipment and the cost beyond budget limitations. This was then budgeted and we are now at the time when the project can be funded.”
 
This week, PennDOT opened bids for the project, which includes two work areas. Loose rock will be removed from approximately 800 feet of a cliff face north of Millersburg in Upper Paxton Township. Loose rock also will be removed and an existing rock fall fence will be replaced south of Millersburg in Upper Paxton and Halifax townships.
 
The apparent low bidder for the project is Clearwater Construction Inc. of Mercer, with a bid of $1,597,000. Construction is expected to start in late winter or early spring and conclude either by the end of the year or in early 2016.
