Patton Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project

Patton Street Bridge in Wilmerding

The Allegheny County Department of Public Works, with funding from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), is planning a Patton Street Bridge rehabilitation project. The Patton Street Bridge provides a vital link between the northern part of Wilmerding and the southern part of Wilmerding as well as Wall and North Versailles.

The purpose of the project is to provide a sustainable crossing over Turtle Creek for all road users and to improve and extend the useful life of the existing pavement. Bridges with a rating of four and below are considered to be in poor condition. When the Patton Street Bridge was last inspected in April 2022, its deck and substructure received ratings of five. If left to deteriorate further, the bridge would soon move into poor condition and possibly become unsafe for the traveling public.

The work will require a one-year closure of the bridge – likely between 2027 and 2028.
