BRIDGEVILLE, Pa. – PennDOT officials say SR 956 has re-opened after the completion of the new bridge across Little Neshannock Creek in Wilmington Township.
The bridge is located in the area called Mayville and reopened on Nov. 3. It closed in early September forcing drivers to use detours.
This bridge is referred to as JV-471 out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
