The newly constructed Brownshill Road Bridge in O’Hara is on track to open by the end of July.

Township Manager Julie Jakubec said crews are about 90 percent complete.

The bridge, which sits off Saxonburg Boulevard, closed April 1 for an expected 130 days so the structurally deficient span could be rebuilt.

Cost is $1.1 million.

Work has been dependent on the weather and despite the rain, the bridge is expected to open just before August.

Township Engineer Chuck Steinert said the new bridge will have two 11-foot lanes, wide enough for two vehicles.

Formerly made of steel and concrete, the new bridge is made with pre-stressed concrete beams.

Work also includes water line relocation and the realignment of the Brownshill Road and Saxonburg Boulevard intersection.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
