APC and PennDOT featured in Washington event

October 6, 2023

Replacement of Pittsburgh’s Fern Hollow Bridge and a portion of I-95 destroyed by a tanker fire in Philadelphia were the topics of a presentation to some 40 congressional staff members on Capitol Hill in Washington.

Deputy PennDOT Secretary Cheryl Moon-Sirianni was joined by APC members Andrew Swank and Rob Buckley. The Fern Hollow bridge, which collapsed in early 2022, was replaced in less than a year, while I-95 was reopened in less than two weeks this summer with a temporary fix.

The presentation focused on steps that PennDOT took to expedite the work, beginning with the declaration of an emergency and cooperation among the various participants. The event was sponsored by the American Road & Transportation Builders Association, a national trade group.
