The work also included drainage improvements, paving and the replacement of guiderails and traffic signals.
The 30-foot-long span, which was posted to prohibit use by heavy vehicles because of its poor condition, is located about 200 feet north of the intersection of Jacks Run Road and Balsam Street.
The more than $868,000 project was performed by C.H. & D. Enterprises Inc., of New Stanton.
