Pittsburgh, PA – PennDOT District 11 is announcing an oversized truck restriction on Route 3014 (McKees Rocks Bridge) in McKees Rocks Borough, Allegheny County, will begin Tuesday, January 10 weather permitting.
The McKees Rocks Bridge will continue to utilize a single lane of traffic in each direction around-the-clock through early July 2023. Starting Tuesday, oversized trucks will be detoured via the West End Bridge.
Phase 2 of the $22.4 million McKees Rocks Bridge preservation project extends between Route 51 (Island Avenue) and Route 65 (Ohio River Boulevard) and includes sidewalk repairs and replacement, full-depth concrete pavement reconstruction of the road and four ramps at Helen Street, ADA curb ramp installation, approach pavement work at intersections of Routes 65 and 51, barrier repair, deck overhang and spall repair, fencing installation, and other miscellaneous construction. As work occurs, traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction, with occasional truck and turning-lane detours occurring at the West End Bridge as needed. The overall project is anticipated to conclude in the fall of 2024.
The Brayman Construction Corporation and Advantage Steel and Construction, LLC are the prime contractor.
