Construction for the Pritts Road (Route 1003) bridge, spanning Laurel Run in Springfield Township, Fayette 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 Fayette County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of August 14 and be complete in late October. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 653 (Jim Mount Road), Route 711/381 (Indian Creek Valley Road) and Indian Head Road (Route 1054).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-486 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.
