Pa. Turnpike Announces Opening of Saxonburg Blvd. Bridge in Indiana Twp., Allegheny County

Bridge set to open by afternoon rush hour on Nov. 25.



The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) announces that the Saxonburg Blvd. Bridge in Indiana Twp., Allegheny County will reopen to traffic by 5 p.m. on Nov. 25.


The bridge carrying Saxonburg Blvd. over the Turnpike at milepost 43.13 has been closed since March 30. Trumbull Corp. of Pittsburgh replaced the bridge with a three-span, concrete box beam bridge. 


The bridge replacement is part of an early-action project needed to accommodate the total reconstruction of the Turnpike from milepost 40 to 48. To date, five bridges (Middle Road, two Gibsonia Road bridges, Rich Hill Road and Saxonburg Blvd.) have been replaced and opened to traffic since work began in early 2013. Over the next three years, one additional bridge in the area will be replaced while the mainline is reconstructed and widened between the Butler Valley Interchange (Exit #39) and Allegheny Valley Interchange (Exit #48).  For more information on this project please visit

Turnpike’s smartphone app, TRIP Talk, streams audio advisories to iPhone and Droid users so they can keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. To download the free app, visit


LeFever Hill Road HAS RE-OPENED!!:        

Indiana Township Bridge Reopens

An Allegheny County bridge closed for reconstruction in late August has reopened in Indiana Township.


The original Lefever Hill Road bridge over Little Deer Creek was built in 1940 and carried 751 vehicles per day before it was closed. It reopened yesterday after a ten-week reconstruction project performed by Carmen Paliotta Contracting.


The Lefever Hill Road bridge replacement is part of the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, a Public-Private Partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP) under which PWKP will finance, design, replace and maintain for 25 years 558 state owned bridges. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.

New Facebook Page Offers Another Way to Find PennDOT News:  

Harrisburg – PennDOT’s newly-launched Facebook page gives Pennsylvanians even more ways to interact with the agency and find valuable transportation news and tips.

“As social media becomes more popular with our customers, they rightfully expect that they can find information in ways they’re used to receiving it,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. “We’re pleased to now have another way that we can communicate with Pennsylvanians and transportation stakeholders.”

The new PennDOT Facebook page features:

  • Available resources for travel and construction information;
  • Information on highway safety including free resources, enforcement and traffic safety laws;
  • Information on driver’s license and motor vehicle operations, including convenient online services;
  • Descriptions of PennDOT’s many services available to the public; and
  • Featured PennDOT job opportunities.

“We encourage Pennsylvanians and others who travel in our state to visit our Facebook page and provide comments, ask questions or even share concerns,” Schoch said. “We take our mission seriously and that includes ensuring people can find out about the services we offer, as well as listening to their feedback.”

Schoch says Facebook is the next logical step in PennDOT’s migration to social media. Since the department launched its official Twitter account – PennDOTNews – two years ago, more than 6,500 followers have signed on.

In addition to the main PennDOTNews Twitter feed, the department also maintains eight regional Twitter accounts allowing followers to get updated traffic alerts and local PennDOT news.

PennDOT will not report traffic or road conditions on its Facebook page. Travelers should visit or call 5-1-1 for current traffic conditions. The regional travel information accounts are accessible by clicking “Follow us on Twitter” on the 511 website.
