Transportation Funding Makes Bridge Replacement Possible in Westmoreland County

Uniontown, PA – Thanks to Act 89, the state’s transportation plan, a long-awaited $494,000 project will get underway to replace the bridge on Route 119 over Jacks Run in Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County.  The old structure will be closed beginning on Monday, April 27 to allow crews to replace the bridge using a precast reinforced concrete box culvert.

A marked detour will be in place utilizing Route 119 to Route 22 to Route 819. PennDOT will issue updates on this project as work progresses. Motorists are advised to be cautious when driving through work zones, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up. Clearwater Construction Inc. is the contractor on this project, which is expected to be completed in early July.
