The work is being done by Carmen Paliotta Contracting, Inc. of South Park and includes a complete bridge replacement, bituminous paving, drainage, guide rail, signing and pavement markings,
miscellaneous construction, and safety improvements. The 2019 Little Deer Creek No. 5 Bridge Replacement Project is a $1.1 million construction contract.
