[ARCHIVED] Lane closures set for Chartiers Bridge and Washington Pike

Chartiers Bridge and Washington Pike Road Project

Beginning Monday, January 10, 2022, single-lane closures will occur on Washington Pike and Chartiers Street in South Fayette Township and Bridgeville Borough, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced.

Widening work will occur on the bridge over Chartiers Creek, near Rite-Aid, Bethany Church and Midas, as part of a major project to widen the bridge and add lanes on Washington Pike and Chartiers Street.

Lane closures on Washington Pike will occur weekdays from 9 AM to 4 PM and 6 PM to 6 AM in each direction of Washington Pike, between James Street in Bridgeville and Route 50 in South Fayette.

Additionally, work will occur on weekends as needed without time restrictions. Work will include roadway excavation, widening, drainage improvements, utility work, signal updates and bridge foundation construction.

Also, lane restrictions controlled by flaggers will occur during the same time frame on Chartiers Street, between Route 50 and Werner Street. Crews will conduct widening work, retaining wall construction, utility work and pavement reconstruction.

The bridge over Chartiers Creek will be widened to seven lanes using Accelerated Bridge Construction techniques as part of this $10.78 million improvement project. Additionally, an exclusive lane from southbound Washington Pike to northbound I-79 will be constructed, widening work will occur on the northbound I-79 on-ramp, and Chartiers Street will be widened to include a turning lane.

The project began in 2021 with utility relocation work and is anticipated to conclude in late 2022. During the 2022 construction season, the bridge will be closed for three extended weekends and a 10-day closure of Chartiers Street will be required. Information will be provided in advance of all closures.

The Joseph B. Fay Company is the prime contractor.
