PennDOT Announces Virtual Plans Display for Route 88 over a Tributary to the Mon River in Washington County

​Uniontown, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to participate in a virtual plans display for the roadway reconstruction improvement project on Route 88 (Pennsylvania Avenue) located in Speers Borough, Washington County.

This project consists of rehabilitating the existing Route 88 (Pennsylvania Avenue) bridge over a Tributary to the Mon River. The existing structure is a single-span concrete slab bridge supported on full-height concrete abutments. The proposed structure rehabilitation will install a structural plate pipe-arch liner system, on an aggregate bed. The wingwalls and headwalls at the inlet and outlet will be reconstructed with reinforced concrete. Installation of the proposed pipe-arch liner system will be performed while maintaining two lanes of traffic on Route 88 (Pennsylvania Avenue).  Associated roadway improvements including guide rail replacement and minor approach work will be completed using short term single-lane closures.

The information on the Route 88 Project including a short overview and an online comment form will be available online. The page will be active from November 1 through November 15 and can be accessed by visiting the PennDOT District 12 website, clicking on the Public Meetings link under the District Links heading, clicking on the Washington County box, and selecting the Route 88 Bridge Replacement Project tile.

Those unable to access the information online may give feedback by contacting PennDOT Project Manager Brian Svesnik, at 724.415.2400 or via email at

The purpose of the online plans display is to introduce the project and receive public input regarding any questions or concerns with the project. It is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the project's potential effect upon Cultural Resources pursuant to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation's 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

The project documents will be made available in alternative languages or formats if requested. If you need translation/interpretation services or have special needs or have special concerns that require individual attention, contact PennDOT Project Manager Brian Svesnik, at 724.415.2400 or via email at
