Construction Postponed on Southview Road (SR 4039) Bridge in Mount Pleasant Township
Washington County Bridge to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership

Uniontown, PA – Construction for the Southview Road (Route 4039) bridge, spanning Millers Run in Mount Pleasant Township, Washington County, has been postponed. It was previously scheduled to begin during the week of July 23.

Construction is now expected to begin during the week of August 6 and be complete in mid-September. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 50.

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.

This bridge is referred to as JV-539 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.
