The Route 27 (Matthews Run Road) bridge, which spans Matthews Run in Brokenstraw Township, Warren 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 Warren County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
The bridge reopened to traffic on Tuesday, June 13. Replacement work was performed by C.H. & D. Enterprises Inc., Inc. of New Stanton, 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-21 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.
