 Short-Term Road Closure on West Smithfield Street Bridge in Elizabeth Township

 Bridgeville, PA – Deck resurfacing work on the Route 2018 (West Smithfield) Street bridge, spanning a branch of Unnamed Creek in Elizabeth Township, Allegheny County will require a road closure from July 19 through July 25.  The culvert replacement work was completed last year and this work will finalize this project.

While the road is closed, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along SR 2018 to SR 2025 to SR 48. Motorists are asked to use caution while driving in the area.

This bridge is referred to as JV-427 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impacts on motorists.

On March 7, 2017, the Allegheny County Council approved the regulation of e-cigarettes in indoor public places, workplaces, and food establishments.  These regulations include the following:


  • Limit the use of e-cigarettes and vape products by food service workers during work hours.

County Executive Rich Fitzgerald issued the following statement in response to the vote: “I am proud that Allegheny County continues to focus on protecting our public health and ensuring that our community is one where quality of life is important.  These measures, recommended by the Allegheny County Health Department and passed by the Board of Health, have  made a statement that we value our public’s health.  I thank Dr. Hacker and the Board of Health for its work on this progressive legislation.  It is initiatives like this that attract companies and talent to this region.

In addition, Allegheny County Health Department Director Dr. Karen Hacker commented: “We are pleased to see the County Council vote in favor of the ordinance to eliminate e-cigarettes and vaping from public indoor spaces where smoking in already prohibited.  This ordinance puts Allegheny County in the company over 500 jurisdictions that I have already passed similar regulations.
