Rural Republicans are expressing serious doubt that private financing — the funding tool favored by conservatives and the White House — could fix the infrastructure needs in their communities.

The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee convened a hearing on Wednesday to get input from transportation leaders from rural regions as lawmakers and the new administration assemble an infrastructure package. 

February 6, 2017, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – SAI Consulting Engineers, Inc. has been selected by Fayette County for the Moyer Road Bridges (Fayette County Bridges #72 and #115) Replacement Project.
The work will include preliminary and final design for the rehabilitation or replacement of bridge numbers 72 and 115 in Bullskin Township that carry (T-907) Moyer Road over Mounts Creek.

The $396 million bid by Trumbull Corp. of Pittsburgh, the only general contractor willing to replace the free I-95 Scudder Falls bridge with a twin toll bridge under conditions set by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission, was accepted by the commission at its meeting in New Hope today.

President Donald Trump's proposal to spend upward of a trillion dollars to overhaul crumbling U.S. infrastructure will be costly for the government, forcing tax hikes, spending cuts or more borrowing to pay for it.

But as peak-pothole season arrives, American motorists dodging an epidemic of roadway craters are already shelling out some $3 billion a year in repair costs for blown tires, broken shock absorbers and busted axles.

To take stress off the damaged Delaware River Bridge, engineers are literally jacking up the 1.2 mile-long span by installing extra supports as they work to permanently fix a fracture in the structure.

Eight, 80-foot tall jacking towers will be installed under the bridge next week, Carl DeFebo, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, said Friday.
