McKnight Road Rehab

  • Location: Pittsburgh, PA
  • Owner: PennDOT, District 11
  • General Contractor: Brayman Construction Corporation
  • Estimated Value: $7.3 million
  • Completion Date: July 2016

The McKnight Road project involved bridge rehabilitation, including deck replacement, of four structures along a stretch of road infamously known locally for traffic congestion. Work consisted of removing and replacing the existing 100-foot bridge decks while completing steel and substructure repairs.

Due to traffic phasing, each bridge needed to be completed in 45 days. This was not a small feat considering the 8,000 man-hours necessary to complete the project in this short period of time.  Additional work items included: painting structural steel, culvert preservation, bituminous pavement, milling, drainage, guide rail, curb and shoulders, signing and pavement marking, signals, bearing replacement and other miscellaneous construction activities.
