Work on a $5.6-million project to replace a bridge on Curry Hollow Road in Pleasant Hills Borough will take another step this week, as crews will place concrete box beams there on Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Intermittent traffic stoppages of 15 minutes or less will occur as needed in the bridge area—east of Jefferson Memorial Cemetery and Funeral Home and just west of Arbor Lane (next to Sheetz)—during that time, according to a news release from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation District 11-0.
Overall work on the bridge won't conclude until the fall of 2013. The prime contractor is Carmen Paliotta Contracting, Inc., of South Park Township.
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.
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.
