Bridgeville, PA – The first phase of the Freeport Road bridge replacement project on Route 1001 over Bailey Run in East Deer Township is complete. The temporary traffic control signals have been removed, and traffic flow has been restored to its normal pattern. In the spring of 2019, phase two of construction will get underway and will include utility work previously scheduled for 2018. During this time, an alternating traffic pattern will 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-409 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.
