Uniontown, PA – The reopening of the new North 4th Street (PA 4007) bridge, spanning Bull Run in the City of Jeannette, Westmoreland County, will be delayed to mid-to-late March 2019.
Construction started in late October 2018 and was anticipated to be complete in late February 2019, however, more flooding and cold weather at the bridge site has adversely affected the construction schedule.
Drivers will continue to follow a car detour along East Gaskill Avenue, 14th Street and PA 130 (Harrison Avenue). Truck drivers will continue to follow a detour along PA 130 (Harrison Avenue), Oakford Park Road (PA 4003), Business Route 66 (Sheridan Road), US 119 (North Main Street), US 30 (Lincoln Highway), Agnew Road to Lewis Avenue (PA 4006) and Chambers Avenue (PA 4009) until the new bridge opens this spring.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule is subject to change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-558 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.
The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years.
