RESUMED: Curry Hollow Road Bridge Work
The work is part of a $5.6-million project to replace a bridge on Curry Hollow near Sheetz.
Work on a $5.6-million project to replace a bridge on Curry Hollow Road in Pleasant Hills Borough resumed on Friday, March 1, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation District 11-0.
Traffic is being reduced to a single, 10-foot wide lane in each direction between Route 51 (Clairton Boulevard) and Keeport Drive, and the restrictions will remain in place around-the-clock through mid-November.
The project includes replacing an existing three-span encased I-beam bridge over railroad tracks just west of Arbor Lane (next to Sheetz) and east of Jefferson Memorial Cemetery and Funeral Home with a single-span adjacent box beam structure.
The new bridge will widen the existing roadway to add a turning lane. Traffic signals will be installed, resurfacing will be done, and other improvements will be made, as well.
The prime contractor is Carmen Paliotta Contracting, Inc., of South Park Township.
This work will coincide with the ongoing large roadwork project at the nearby Curry Hollow-Brownsville Road-Broughton Road intersection, which is not expected to be completed until the spring of 2013.
Curry Hollow Road sits between Route 51 and Brownsville Road on the border of Pleasant Hills and Baldwin boroughs.
