Construction for the Route 168 (Tuscarawas Road) bridge, spanning Painters Run in South Beaver Township, Beaver County, is scheduled to begin as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Beaver County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of April 2 and be complete in early May. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 251 (Blackhawk Road) and Route 51 (Constitution Boulevard).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-452 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.
