The Logans Ferry Road (Route 2075) bridge, which spans an Allegheny Valley Railroad in Plum Borough, Allegheny County, that’s been under construction as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, is complete and open to traffic. Replacement of the bridge allows PennDOT to remove it from Allegheny County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
The bridge reopened to traffic on Tuesday, December 5. Replacement work was performed by Allison Park Contractors, Inc. of Gibsonia, PA.
The bridge was closed on October 2 for the replacement project. The project team was able to expedite construction and complete the project 11 days ahead of schedule.
The new crossing is longer and wider than the one it replaced and is designed with a 100-year lifespan.
This bridge is referred to as JV-435 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.
