Washington County Bridge to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership
Uniontown, PA – Construction for the Southview Road (Route 4039) bridge, which spans Millers Run in Mount Pleasant Township, Washington County has been postponed until further notice. It was previously scheduled to begin during the week of September 18 as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
A press release with full details on the new construction timeline will be distributed two weeks prior to the start of construction.
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.
To see the bridges included in the statewide initiative and to learn more about the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project and P3 in Pennsylvania, visit www.p3forpa.pa.gov. Additional information on the project, the team, how to bid on the project or requests for special needs or accommodations to aid public participation at this facility can be found at www.parapidbridges.com or by calling the project hotline at 877-444-9990 or email [email protected].

The Mount Pleasant Township Board of Supervisors continues in their efforts to diminish the impact that the gas well activity has caused to the residents of this township. Please keep in mind that although the challenge to Act 13 was successful with respect to zoning, the Township cannot regulate how the industry operates. Also, the Township cannot regulate environmental issues regulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. But rest assured the board continues to monitor all activity and to minimize the effects of this activity to the extent possible.
