Shelbourne Road Jughandle
The Shelbourne Road Jughandle Project was the second of two jughandle roadways constructed at the congested intersection of SR 0422 and Shelbourne Road in Exeter Township, Berks County. The purpose of the jughandles was to improve the efficiency and safety of the intersection by removing left turns from SR 0422. The resulting roadway was 1,400 feet long and included a 200 foot bridge over Antietam Creek.
Gibson-Thomas completed final design of the project. These activities included:
- Completing the roadway design
- Designing two new stormwater ponds and modifying and existing private facility
- Updating and completing the Joint Permit documentation
- Obtaining an NPDES permit
- Coordinating utility relocations
- Designing a log and rock streambank protection at a bend in Antietam Creek near the structure pier
- Modifying the existing signal at the intersection of SR 0422 and Shelbourne Road
The Shelbourne Road Jughandle was opened to traffic in July 2015.
