Portion of Church Lane to Close April 24th!:  

Construction to Begin on Church Lane (Route 1012) Bridge in Indiana Township

Allegheny County Bridge to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership

 

Construction for the Church Lane (Route 1012) bridge, spanning Shafers Run in Indiana 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 April 24 and be complete in early June. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Middle Road, Harts Run Road (Route 1010) and Saxonburg Boulevard (Route 1013).


In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change. 

This bridge is referred to as JV-413 and is one out of 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.


The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impacts on motorists.

New Facebook Page Offers Another Way to Find PennDOT News:  

Harrisburg – PennDOT’s newly-launched Facebook page gives Pennsylvanians even more ways to interact with the agency and find valuable transportation news and tips.

“As social media becomes more popular with our customers, they rightfully expect that they can find information in ways they’re used to receiving it,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. “We’re pleased to now have another way that we can communicate with Pennsylvanians and transportation stakeholders.”

The new PennDOT Facebook page features:

  • Available resources for travel and construction information;
  • Information on highway safety including free resources, enforcement and traffic safety laws;
  • Information on driver’s license and motor vehicle operations, including convenient online services;
  • Descriptions of PennDOT’s many services available to the public; and
  • Featured PennDOT job opportunities.

“We encourage Pennsylvanians and others who travel in our state to visit our Facebook page and provide comments, ask questions or even share concerns,” Schoch said. “We take our mission seriously and that includes ensuring people can find out about the services we offer, as well as listening to their feedback.”

Schoch says Facebook is the next logical step in PennDOT’s migration to social media. Since the department launched its official Twitter account – PennDOTNews – two years ago, more than 6,500 followers have signed on.

In addition to the main PennDOTNews Twitter feed, the department also maintains eight regional Twitter accounts allowing followers to get updated traffic alerts and local PennDOT news.

PennDOT will not report traffic or road conditions on its Facebook page. Travelers should visit www.511PA.com or call 5-1-1 for current traffic conditions. The regional travel information accounts are accessible by clicking “Follow us on Twitter” on the 511 website.
