Pittsburgh, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of
Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to a virtual public meeting on the
Route 2006 East Washington Street Bridge Replacement Project at 5 p.m. on
Thursday, December 16.
This project involves
the replacement of the SR 2006 Section L03 (East Washington Street) Bridge over
Neshannock Creek which is located between the intersections with East Street
and Route 108 (Croton Avenue) in the City of New Castle, Lawrence County.
The existing two-span
elliptical reinforced concrete arch bridge will be replaced with a two-span
precast spread box beam bridge. The proposed abutments will be placed behind
the existing walls and the existing pier will be replaced. The proposed structure will maintain four
10-foot wide lanes and a 10-foot wide sidewalk on each side. There will be minor roadway approach work to
tie into the new bridge deck. The
existing light poles will be reset on the proposed bridge and architectural
treatments will be incorporated into the new structure. The project is anticipated to begin construction
in 2023 with a roadway closure and detour.
virtual public meeting will include a short presentation giving an overview of
the project and its impacts as well as provide an opportunity for the public to
ask the Project Team questions.
