Governor Tom Wolf and Mayor Ed Gainey announced the newly constructed Fern Hollow Bridge opened to traffic at the end of December. 

The Fern Hollow Bridge opened to a single-lane of bi-directional traffic. The shared use path on the southern side of the structure is open to bicycles and pedestrians. 

The bridge, which carries Forbes Avenue over Frick Park, is opening a mere 11 months after the structure collapsed on January 28, 2022. 

Thanks to collaboration with the City of Pittsburgh and PennDOT’s innovative approach to the standard design process, multiple design phases occurred simultaneously which allowed project delivery to be expedited by multiple years.

Park restoration and miscellaneous construction activities will continue on the project through the spring of 2023. Additional closures are anticipated to complete the deck overlay work. Details will be provided in advance of any major restrictions. 

Information on the construction of the new Fern Hollow Bridge can be found on PennDOT’s website. To learn more about transportation investments across Pennsylvania, visit projects.PennDOT.gov.
