Balfour Beatty Infrastructure to start on US bridge

Balfour Beatty Infrastructure is set to start work on the $14 million bridge rehabilitation project on US 119 in Connellsville, Pennsylvania for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

Work is set to start next month. The contract involves extensive work on the 800 foot long Memorial Bridge, a five-span steel plate girder structure that spans the Youghiogheny River.

Balfour Beatty Infrastructure CEO and Vice President Jim Moynihan said: “Our bridge construction and rehab work has earned us recognition in Pennsylvania, and deservedly so, this is just one more in our long list of ambitious projects, and we are looking forward to getting started.”

The bridge structure makes up about 70 percent of the project. The roadway component includes concrete and asphalt paving, drainage, electrical work, guide rail replacement, traffic maintenance and protection, new signs, and line striping.
