Uniontown, PA – The County Line Road (Route 1058) bridge, spanning Indian Creek in Saltlick and Donegal townships, Fayette County, reopened to traffic on Thursday, December 27. The temporary traffic control signals have been removed, and traffic flow has been restored to its normal pattern.
In the spring of 2019, construction on the bridge will resume to complete work that was unable to be completed over the winter. During that time, an alternating traffic pattern may be implemented and controlled by temporary traffic signals. Construction is expected to be complete in June 2019.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-498 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. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impacts on motorists.
