North Race Street Bridge in Greenville Open to Traffic

| December 23, 2016

penndotGREENVILLE, Pa. – The new bridge carrying North Race Street over the Little Shenango River in Greenville Borough, Mercer County, opened to traffic yesterday.

The road had been closed since late June when replacement work started on what was a 95-year-old, 125-foot-long structurally deficient concrete arch bridge.

The project called for construction of a new two-span, adjacent box beam bridge, along with paved roadway approaches, new concrete bridge approach slabs, and updated drainage, guiderails, signs, and pavement markings.

On average, approximately 1,400 vehicles a day use the bridge.

Some final paving and revegetation work will be completed in the spring of 2017.

The contractor is Carmen Paliotta Contracting Inc. of South Park, PA. The contract cost is $2,359,793.75. Federal funds are paying 80 percent of the cost, while 15 percent will be paid with state funds and 5 percent paid with local funds.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 770 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
