Markosky is certified by the Pennsylvania Unified Certification Program (PAUCP) and the PA Department of General Services as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise. Currently the company employs over 60 professionals working in the organization.
One of Markosky’s most recent projects was the SR 0980, Section 139 project included the realignment of the southern approach of PA 980 to form a ‘plus’ intersection and constructing a new bridge carrying the Montour trail over the intersection to fully separate trail-using families, pedestrians and bicyclists from surface motor vehicle traffic. The new 379’ bridge is a three-span composite steel girder structure, which provides the necessary vertical clearances for both PA 980 and PA 50 while meeting the Trail’s requirement of a maximum approach grade. The new bridge also completes the final Montour Trail gap in Washington County, the heavily traveled central part of the Trail.
The project incorporated numerous innovative and unique aspects including the adaptive reuse of the only remaining portion of the original two-girder structure built in 1913 by the Montour Railroad. Additionally, the project incorporated geosynthetic reinforced slope (GRS) embankments for the trail approaches in order to increase the clearance of the new bridge over the roadways without increasing the embankment footprint thereby avoiding impacts to adjacent properties and the environment.
Markosky invests in our future by supporting groups that benefit children such as the Laurel Highlands Council Boy Scouts of America, Community Foundation Alleghenies, Dreams Go ON Trail Ride, STAT, Inc. LVHS Alliance of Student Athletes, Ligonier Camp & Conference Center to name a few.

I met Jill a little over a year ago. It took little time working with Jill to realize that her work ethic is impeccable.
