Construction for the Palmer Road (Route 3013) bridge near Ball Hill Road, which spans Middle Run in German Township, Fayette County has been postponed. It was previously scheduled to begin during the week of August 21.
Construction is now expected to begin during the week of September 5 and be complete in mid-November. During construction, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 166 (Hartley Hill Road), Ralph Road (Route 4002) and Palmer Adah Road (Route 3013). Croushore Road (T-343) is a local road option included in the detour route. It will connect Palmer Adah Road (Route 3013) and Palmer Road (Route 3013).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-562 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
