Jeannette, Hempfield bridge construction to begin Sept. 3
Bridge replacement projects in Jeannette and the Hempfield/Unity area are set to begin in early September.
Construction on the North Fourth Street bridge over Bull Run in Jeannette, and on the Brinkerton Road bridge spanning Township Line Run in Hempfield and Unity, will begin Sept. 3, with work slated to finish in mid-November.
Detours will be in place in both areas.
The bridges are among 558 being replaced statewide as part of the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, a public-private partnership. All of the bridges will be replaced with one of five pre-fabricated designs.
The overall project is slated to finish by the end of 2018.
