This project is owned by the Commonwealth of PA. It is located on Route 38, Emlenton Borough, Venango County, PA.

This project included the reconstruction of approximately 1.5 miles of an existing two lane roadway with Wearing, Binder and Base Courses. Within this reconstruction there was  a Precast Concrete Box Culvert and approximately 3000 lf of drainage pipes. The largest part of this project included  the construction of four reinforced concrete  Soldier Pile Retaining Walls and two Cast In Place Cantilever Walls, ranging from 10 foot to over 55 foot. There was over 3000 feet of retaining wall constructed. Mekis Construction Corporation initiated the redesign of the walls which lead to a significant savings of money by the Department. These walls also included 81 Post Tensioned Rock Anchors.
