PennDOT District 11, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, invites the public to a meeting on Weds. April 18 about the Route 50/Chartiers Creek bridge widening and intersection improvement project planned in South Fayette Township and Bridgeville Borough. The meeting will be held from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., with a short presentation at 5:15 p.m., at the Bridgeville Volunteer Fire Department, Chartiers Room, 370 Commercial Street, Bridgeville, PA 15017.
Project team members will be on hand to provide project details and information about traffic restrictions, as well as to answer questions and gather public feedback.
“We’ve been working diligently with the Route 50 Task Force to develop an improvement alternative for the Route 50/Chartiers Street area and we are pleased to share the results with the public,” said Cheryl Moon-Sirianni, PennDOT District 11 Executive.
The project includes an evaluation and design of roadway and bridge improvement options along Route 50 and Chartiers Street. The bridge over Chartiers Creek will be replaced with a wider structure to accommodate the increased demand on Route 50. Additionally, Route 50 will be widened, and the intersection of Route 50 and Chartiers Street will be improved. The Interstate 79 northbound on-ramp also will be improved to increase capacity for travelers accessing I-79 northbound.
