Public Works Closes Bull Creek Bridge No. 9 in West Deer Twp.

PITTSBURGH – The Allegheny County Department of Public Works today announced that it has closed Bull Creek Bridge No. 9 located on Dawson Road in West Deer Twp. due to its deteriorating condition.

The county has established a detour route and will post signs as soon as they can be produced. Traffic normally heading eastbound on Dawson Road will instead follow Saxonburg Boulevard south, then east on Millerstown Culmerville Road/Millerstown Road, and west on Thompson Road. Motorists normally heading westbound on Thompson Road/Dawson Road will follow the same detour in reverse. A map showing the location of the closed bridge and the detour route is available at World Wide Web Icon http://goo.gl/maps/sk0KG.  

Bull Creek Bridge No. 9 will remain closed until it is replaced with a new structure, which is estimated to open in late October 2013.

For additional information, contact Bridge Manager Michael Dillon at 412-350-5469.
