Work will resume on the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge starting at 7 a.m. Monday, March 31, as crews work to finish the painting portion of the $16.6 million rehabilitation project.
Motorists should expect single-lane, alternating traffic from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays on the bridge, according to PennDOT.
Alternating traffic will be controlled with the use of flaggers, PennDOT said.
Overall work is anticipated to conclude in late May. PennDOT advises motorists to expect delays when traveling through the area.
On Thursday, Duquesne Light Co. completed some lighting work on the bridge, which crosses the Ohio River between Route 65 and Route 51.
PennDOT has been working since 2012 to rehabilitate the ten-span structure. The $16.6 million project includes deck and sidewalk replacement, concrete repair, steel repair and replacement, railing, structural steel painting, bituminous pavement patching, pavement markings and other improvements.
The prime contractor is the Trumbull Corp. of Pittsburgh.
