PennDOT and the Brayman Construction Corporation of Saxonburg, PA, are hosting a public meeting to provide information on the Hulton Bridge replacement project onThursday, Sept. 12.
The meeting will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the Riverview Jr./Sr. High School, 100 Hulton Road, Oakmont, PA 15139. The meeting is open to everyone.
At the meeting, project team members will provide detailed information on work activities and traffic impacts that will occur during the construction of the new bridge.
The nearly $65 million dollar project includes replacing the 105 year old bridge with a new four lane structure. The new bridge will be approximately 1600 feet long and located directly upstream of the existing bridge. Additionally, the project includes reconstruction of approximately 1300 feet of Freeport Road and 550 feet of Hulton Road, signal and lighting upgrades, curb and sidewalk improvements, drainage, pavement markings and utility relocation.
While construction is occurring on the new bridge, motorists will continue to use the current structure.
Work on the new bridge is expected to begin in the fall and be completed by 2015.
