Uniontown, PA – The reopening of the Route 711 (North Market Street) bridge over Mill Creek in Ligonier Township, Westmoreland County, has been delayed. Construction started in April 2018 and was anticipated to be complete in February 2019. However, due to construction delays the new anticipated completion date is late April 2019. The existing alternating traffic pattern controlled by temporary traffic signals will continue until construction is complete.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule is subject to change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-548 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.
