Uniontown, PA – The reopening of the South Porter Street (Route 2003) bridge, which spans South Fork Tenmile Creek in Franklin Township and Borough of Waynesburg, Greene County, has been delayed. Construction started in February 2019 and was anticipated to be complete in late May 2019. However, due to construction delays the new anticipated bridge reopening date is late June 2019. This bridge is being replaced as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule is subject to change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-510 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.
