Bridge projects to affect traffic
PennDOT announced several detours will be in effect during various bridge projects, including three bridge replacements in Westmoreland County.
— A bridge on Two Mill Run Road in Ligonier Township will be replaced, prompting daylight detours from April 5 through the end of July. The bridge is between routes 711 and 30. A detour will be in place from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, using routes 711 and 30.
— A portion of Armburst-Hecla Road will be closed for bridge replacement from April 4 through the end of July. The bridge is between Route 819 and Hecla Road. The detour will be in place from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and uses routes 819 and 981, as well as Hecla Road.
— A section of West Newton Street in Hempfield will be closed for bridge replacement starting April 1 and running through the end of May. The bridge is between Adamsburg and Millersdale Road. The detour will be in place from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and uses Adamsburg Road, Route 30 and Millersdale Road.
— Tide Road in Center Township, Indiana County, will close for repairs to the Route 119 bridge March 29. The closure will be in place at the Yellow Creek Road/Mazza Street intersection under the bridge, where a temporary bridge support will be constructed. The bridge was restricted in June 2010 after beam deterioration was found. The temporary support will allow for unrestricted travel on Route 119 over the bridge. The restriction will be lifted once the temporary support is in place.
— Work will resume on the rehabilitation project of the Grafton Bridge on Campbell’s Mill Road over Blacklick Creek in Black Lick Township. The bridge is scheduled to close April 4, and a posted detour will be in place during the project, which is expected to be completed by the end of September. The detour uses Route 3013, Blacklick Road, and routes 217, 22 and 119.
