The Mount Pleasant Road (Route 3003) bridge, which spans Beaver Run in Beaver Township, Jefferson County, that’s been under construction as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, is complete and open to traffic. Replacement of the bridge allows PennDOT to remove it from Jefferson County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
The bridge reopened to traffic on Friday, July 21. Replacement work was performed by Walsh II Construction of Pittsburgh, PA.
The new crossing is longer and wider than the one it replaced and is designed with a 100-year lifespan.
This bridge is referred to as JV-394 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
