Beagle Bridge in Bethel Park to be repaired

Jul. 13—A bridge repair project in a Bethel Park neighborhood is expected to begin next month.

Alternating traffic patterns along Beagle Drive Bridge will take place mid-August and last about four weeks.

Borough director of engineering Stacey Graf said the two-lane bridge off Library Road needs structural steel repairs, painting to the existing superstructure and various minor repairs.

She said no major repairs are necessary and the bridge is not expected to be fully closed during the work.

Council unanimously awarded the near $80,000 job to Michael Facchiano Contracting at the July 12 meeting. The company was the lowest of three bidders.

Graf said she has worked with Facchiano on other projects.

"They have always done good work and are a well-known company," she said. "This project is to do some repairs to the underside of the bridge."

The top deck of the bridge was replaced more than four years ago and is still in good shape, Graf said.

More information will be posted on the borough's website closer to the project start date.
