N. Franklin Township, Washington County

Uniontown, PA – PennDOT District 12 would like to advise motorists that a bridge on a section of Route 3038 (Ridgewood Drive Road) where it goes over Interstate 70 in North Franklin Township will be closed and detoured starting tonight, April 15 at 8:00 PM through late August.

This closure is going into place so that the superstructure (beams and bridge deck) can be replaced. A marked detour will be in place that uses Route 3013 (Franklin Farms Road), Route 40, and Route 3010 (Old National Pike).

Additionally, there will be nighttime, intermittent single lane closures on Interstate 70 between Taylorstown (Exit 11) and Chestnut Street (Exit 15) as needed between 8:00 PM and 6:00 AM so that the existing beams can be removed. Motorists will need to be alert and watch for traffic pattern changes.

This multi-location contract is for bridge restoration on structures in various municipalities district-wide. The contractor on this $5.35 million project is Swank Construction Company, LLC.
