PennDOT is inviting the public to view virtual plans for the proposed restoration of Route 61 in Tilden Township.

The proposed project begins just north of the westbound ramps of the Interstate 78/PA 61 interchange and terminates at the south end of the bridge over the Schuylkill River.

The proposed roadway improvements include milling off the pavement, patching the underlying concrete, and paving.

Concrete mountable curb, guide rail, and concrete glare screen are proposed to be installed in the median throughout the corridor. Pedestrian, traffic signal, guide rail, drainage, and shoulder upgrades are also part of the proposed project.

The virtual plans display will be held November 11th through the 25th. The public can access the information at the Tilden Township website,, in the ‘News & Alerts’ tab, or at:

The purpose of the display is to provide the public with an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed project.
