Hulton Bridge, SR 2082

Hulton Bridge


  • Location
    • Harmar Township in Allegheny County.
    • Hulton Bridge carrying Hulton Road (S.R. 2082) over the Allegheny River from Freeport Road (S.R. 1001) in Harmar Township to the Allegheny Ave./Allegheny River Boulevard intersection in Oakmont Borough all in Allegheny County
    • This project is the replacement of the Existing Hulton Bridge carrying Hulton Road (S.R. 2082) over the Allegheny River from Freeport Road (S.R. 1001) in Harmar Township to the Allegheny Ave./Allegheny River Boulevard intersection in Oakmont Borough all in Allegheny County.
    • The existing Hulton Bridge was built in 1908 by Allegheny County and is comprised of two lanes with a 20.9’ curb to curb width, with no shoulders.

    • Hulton Bridge Options
  • Scope of Work
    • The scope of work includes replacing the existing bridge with a four lane structure, including consideration for bike and pedestrian facilities, just upstream of the existing bridge.
    • The project includes the reconstruction of the Freeport Road/Hulton Road intersection and realignment of Hulton Road at the Oakmont approach to align with the new river crossing location.

    • An upgraded traffic signal will be placed at the Freeport Road/Hulton Road intersection to accommodate through traffic and turning movements onto the new structure. The length of the new structure will be approximately 1,600 feet, with approximately 1800 feet of work on Freeport Road at the Freeport Road/Hulton Road intersection and approximately 700 feet of approach work to realign Hulton Road in Oakmont.
    • As the new structure will be built “off line” a detour will not be required and maintenance and protection of traffic will be conducted in phases to allow for reconstruction of the approaches.
    • The preliminary engineering was completed and an environmental document approved in the spring of 2010. Final Design and Right of Way Activities / Acquisition will take place in 2010 through 2012. The project is scheduled for a bid opening late summer 2013 with the new bridge opening to traffic in late 2015.
  • Estimated Construction Cost - $70 - 90 Million
  • Proposed Construction Schedule
    • Begin Fall 2013
    • Complete Spring 2016
