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.
