The Walton Road (Route 3021) bridge, which spans Lobbs Run in Jefferson Hills Borough, Allegheny County and has been under construction as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, is complete and open to traffic. Replacement of the bridge allows PennDOT to remove it from Allegheny County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
The bridge reopened to traffic on Monday, May 22. Replacement work was performed by A. Merante Contracting, Inc. of Pittsburgh, PA. The new crossing is longer and wider than the one it replaced and is designed with a 100-year lifespan.
This bridge is referred to as JV-440 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.
