the Route 381 (Wharton Furnace Road) bridge, which spans Stony Fork in Wharton Township, Fayette County has been postponed. It was previously scheduled to begin during the week of September 5.
Construction is now expected to begin during the week of September 11 and be complete in late February 2018. During construction, an alternating traffic pattern will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-484 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.
