President Biden and Governor Wolf Visit the Fern Hollow Bridge
I-579 Cap Project Awarded AASHTO's National Grand Prize
District 11 Shares e-Ticketing Expertise to Peers
President Joe Biden and Governor Tom Wolf visited the Fern Hollow Bridge on October 20, 2022 to highlight the importance of infrastructure investment and the impacts of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) on Pennsylvaniaâ€™s transportation network. The Fern Hollow Bridge, locally owned by the City of Pittsburgh, collapsed in late January. Through the Governorâ€™s Declaration of Disaster Emergency Proclamation, PennDOT was able to enter a legal agreement with the City of Pittsburgh to design and construct the new bridge. The BIL allowed the department to dedicate $25.3 million in federal funds immediately without impacting other critical regional infrastructure projects. â€œThis is the power of federal infrastructure investments in Pennsylvania. At the site of a tragedy that took place less than 8 months ago, we now have a bridge that is nearing completion,â€ said Governor Wolf. â€œThose federal dollars will also help us speed up other repair and replacement projects across the commonwealth, so we can keep more Pennsylvanians safer, support more union jobs, and ensure that Pennsylvaniaâ€™s infrastructure can stand up to our 21st century needs.â€
County: AlleghenyMore About the Fern Hollow Bridge Project
The I-579 Urban Open Space Cap Project in the City of Pittsburgh earned the national grand prize in the 2022 Americaâ€™s Transportation Awardâ€™s Competition sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). The I-579 cap project is a unique Sports and Exhibition Authority sponsored project located in the City of Pittsburgh. The project has constructed a â€œcapâ€ structure spanning I-579, recreating a link between downtown Pittsburgh and the Hill District. In part, the project created a new three-acre public greenspace. This project is an excellent example of multi-organizational collaboration with funding from the Federal Highway Administration, construction oversight by PennDOT and the City of Pittsburgh owning and maintaining the park and recreation area upon completion.

John Myler, a Assistant Construction Engineer in PennDOT District 11, recently represented the department in a peer exchange for e-Ticketing. John sits on the Federal Highway Administrationâ€™s EDC-6 Initiative Team for e-Ticketing and traveled to Puerto Rico to share his expertise on the issue. John is considered a subject matter expert and explained to Puerto Rican representatives what e-Ticketing is about, how it works, what technology exists, and the benefits of the system. These events also allow the department to see what innovative measures other states are implementing and help build relationships with peers across the country for future discussions.
