Uniontown, PA – Construction for the Route 481 bridge, spanning Taylors Run in Carroll Township, Washington County, has been postponed. It was previously scheduled to begin during the week of July 16.
Construction is now expected to begin during the week of July 23 and be complete in late September. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a car detour along Coyle Curtain Road (Route 2025) and Route 88 (Country Club Road).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-524 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.
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.
