Route 910 (Gibsonia Road) Bridge Replacement to close Section of State Route 910
in Indiana Twp., Allegheny Co.
10-month detour for local traffic
The Pennsylvania Turnpike will be closing a section of State Route 910 in Indiana Twp., Allegheny Co. on Feb. 3 to begin work on the replacement of an overhead bridge which carries Gibsonia Road (State Route 910) over the Turnpike at milepost 42.65. The 10-month detour will affect traffic near the intersection west of State Route 910 and Saxonburg Blvd., between Cedar Run Road and Myers Lane.
The bridge replacement will require a detour, which will be in effect starting Feb. 3. Drivers are advised to follow this approved route:
Traffic will be detoured over Saxonburg Boulevard (SR 1013), Harts Run Road (SR 1010), Middle Road, and Gibsonia Road (SR 910). Approximate length of detour is 14 miles.
Lane Construction Corporation, of Cheshire, Conn., will be replacing the existing bridge that carries Gibsonia Road over the Turnpike at milepost 42.65 with a new four-span steel girder bridge. The project is scheduled for completion by December 2014.
The bridge replacements are early action projects needed to accommodate the future total reconstruction of Turnpike from milepost 40 to 48. Two bridges (Middle Road and Gibsonia Road) have already been replaced and opened to traffic since work began in early 2013. Rich Hill Road Bridge is currently under construction with a completion date of May 2014. Over the next five years, two additional bridges in the area will be replaced and the mainline will be reconstructed and widened between the Butler Valley Interchange (Exit #39) and Allegheny Valley Interchange (Exit #48).
