Here’s the full release from PennDOT:
PennDOT District 11, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is inviting interested parties to attend a public meeting for the Route 50/Chartiers Creek Bridge Widening and Intersection Improvement project in South Fayette Township and Bridgeville Borough, Allegheny County, Wednesday, April 18.
The meeting will be held at the Bridgeville Volunteer Fire Department, Chartiers Room, 370 Commercial Street, Bridgeville, PA 15017 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18. A
short presentation will be given at 5:15 p.m.
“We’ve been working diligently with the Route 50 Task Force to develop an improvement alternative for the Route 50/Chartiers Street area and we are pleased to share the results with the public,” said Cheryl Moon-Sirianni, PennDOT District 11 Executive. The project includes the evaluation and design of roadway and bridge improvement options along Route 50 and Chartiers Street (Route 3034). The bridge over Chartiers Creek will be replaced with a wider structure to accommodate the increased demand on Route 50.
Additionally, Route 50 will be widened and the intersection of Route 50 and Chartiers Street will be improved. The I-79 northbound on–ramp will also be improved to increase capacity for travelers accessing I-79 northbound.
Project team members will be on hand to provide project details and traffic restrictions, as well as, answer questions and gather public feedback.
