Construction Equipment Guide reports on a Beaver County, Pa., project involving complete replacement of the mainline bridge over the Beaver River under way on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
The contract was awarded to Fay, S&B USA Construction. This $270 million project calls for the total reconstruction and widening of 2 mi. of the Turnpike's east-west mainline (Interstate 76) between Milepost 12 and Milepost 14.
A new 1,645-linear ft., five-span, parallel cast-in-place segmental bridge over the Beaver River will be 25 ft. taller at the crown and approximately double the width. The current single 60-ft.-wide bridge will be replaced with two 58-ft.-wide bridges that travel in each direction.
The project began in January 2023 and will be completed in September of 2027.
Both bridges are currently being built beside the current bridge and will be ready for traffic by November 2026, when the original bridge will then be demolished.
