The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will receive $132 million to renovate and repair three major bridges in Pittsburgh.
The funds will allow for critical repairs to all three bridges, including repainting superstructures, fixing steel components and repairing and replacing joints and bearings.
The largest amount, $60 million, will go to repair the Fort Duquesne Bridge, a steel bowstring arch bridge over the Allegheny River that opened in 1969.
Repairs on the West End Bridge will receive $47 million. The bridge, which crosses the Ohio River downstream from Pittsburgh, was completed in 1932.
The McKees Rocks Bridge, a steel trussed through arch bridge built over the Ohio River in 1931, will receive $25 million.
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, is directly funding the McKees Rocks Bridge and Fort Duquesne Bridge projects.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law went into effect in November 2021 and has already made more than $400 billion available nationwide, including road and bridge repairs, port and waterway expansions, airport improvements and water infrastructure construction.
