the Route 136 (Rainbow Run Road) bridge, spanning a tributary to Monongahela River in Forward
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 September 18 and be complete in mid-October. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 51, Route 2001 and Route 2005.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-402 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.
