Route 18 Frankfort Road Bridge Replacement Online Public Meeting Wednesday

02/07/2022

​​

Pittsburgh, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to a virtual public meeting on the Route 18 Frankfort Road Bridge Replacement Project on Wednesday, February 9, 2022.

The Route 18-B61 Frankfort Road Bridge project consists of the replacement of the existing truss bridge carrying Frankfort Road over Raccoon Creek just north of the Route 3019 (Raccoon Creek Road) intersection located in Potter Township, Beaver County.  The new bridge will be on new alignment downstream of the existing bridge.  The project scope of work also includes approach roadway realignment, geometry improvements, drainage, guiderail, signing, and pavement markings updates.  Traffic will be maintained on the existing bridge and a reduced duration detour will be necessary to complete the roadway tie-ins.  Construction for this project is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2023 and extend into 2025.

The 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.

The meeting will be held:

Time: 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM

Date: Wednesday, February 9

Location: Online only, link available online
