Construction for the Route 4031 (Back Vail Road) bridge, spanning Decker Run in the Borough of Tyrone, Blair 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 Blair County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of June 5 and be complete in mid-August. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 453 and Route 4027 (Pennsylvania Avenue).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-323 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.
