The Route 75 (Main Street) bridge in Juniata County reopened to traffic earlier this week.  The bridge had been under construction as part of the PennDOT’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.  The bridge spans Horse Valley Run Creek in Tuscarora Township. The new crossing is longer and wider than the one it replaced and is designed with a 100-year lifespan.
