Brewster Credits PennDOT’s District Executive for Quick Action, Decisiveness on Rt. 51 Bridge

Elizabeth Bridge

State Sen. Jim Brewster said today that PennDOT’s District Executive Cheryl Moon-Sirianni acted quickly, decisively and in the interest of public safety when she ordered the temporary closure of the Route 51 Bridge between Elizabeth and West Elizabeth following a cable support failure.

“The temporary closure of the heavily-used bridge was necessary to avert a crisis,” Brewster said.  “District Director Moon-Sirianni took decisive action to protect those who use the Route 51 Bridge in Elizabeth. Safety is a top priority.”

Brewster said he has been assured that repair work will continue on the span and crews will be on scene doing repairs until the bridge can be safely reopened. 

“The bridge is a key aspect of the Mon Valley transportation system and must be quickly repaired,” Brewster said.  “PennDOT leadership has been open, transparent and acted to protect those who use the bridge.”

Brewster said that PennDot will provide further updates as work progresses.
