Project Details

Design of extensive rehabilitation of the existing structure carrying White Deer and Reading Railroad over White Deer Creek and White Deer Pike.

The existing structure was extensively damaged by flooding in 2001. The project included reconstruction of the existing four-span deck-girder bridge utilizing the existing superstructure components, both abutments, and one pier. Two new piers were constructed to replace those previously removed due to the flooding. The superstructure components utilized were previously stored on the single remaining span, Span 4, and on the tracks behind the South Abutment. The new four-span structure has a total length of 210’.


For over 20 years I have had the privilege of working with Keller Engineers and their staff of surveyors, and civil and structural engineers on over $150 million worth of work. During these project relationships and partnering opportunities, my architectural teams have received nothing but premium professional services and courtesy towards my own staff, clients and prospective clients with stellar attention given to building and site details, client responsiveness and peer respect. I look forward to many more teaming opportunities and urge any other architectural firms, municipalities or clients who have not worked with Keller Engineers to do so. You will be pleasantly surprised! Richard L. Karcher, AIA, NCARB
