Users of a deteriorating bridge on Elfinwild Road in Shaler got the opportunity recently to tell Allegheny County officials their feelings about its replacement.

During a Jan. 24 public hearing on the project, the public got to see the preliminary plans for the county-owned bridge, scheduled for replacement in 2020.

During the meeting at the Shaler Municipal Building, township Commissioner James Boyle said “time and nature” have caused the 36-year-old bridge's deterioration.

A transportation research group is highlighting the worst traffic jams on U.S. highways as President Trump promises to revitalize the nation’s ailing roads, bridges, tunnels and other public works.

A group of senior Senate Democrats on Tuesday unveiled their own $1 trillion plan to revamp the nation’s airports, bridges, roads and seaports, urging President Trump to back their proposal, which they say would create 15 million jobs over 10 years.

The Democrats said their infrastructure plan would rely on direct federal spending and would span a range of projects including not only roads and bridges, but also the nation’s broadband network, hospitals run by the Department of Veterans Affairs and schools.



SAI's overall performance on this project was outstanding.
