Construction for the Lovedale Road (SR 2010) bridge, spanning over a branch of Wylie Run in Elizabeth Township, Allegheny County, is scheduled to begin as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Allegheny County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of July 24 and be complete in late August. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along McKeesport Road (SR 2001), Route 51 (Hayden Boulevard), Route 48 (Scenery Drive), and Mill Hill Road (SR 2008).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-424 and is one out of 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.
