Bridge Project to Restrict One Northbound Lane of I-279 Beginning 8 PM Tonight

PITTSBURGH – The Allegheny County Department of Public Works today announced that due to an equipment failure/breakdown, the lane closure of the right lane on I-279 northbound, originally scheduled to occur last night, will instead occur this evening, Friday, March 1, from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. The single lane closure for construction related to the Levi Bird Duff Bridge project access road will cover approximately ½ mile of the northbound right lane between Exit 5/Perrysville Avenue and Exit 7/West View.

The Levi Bird Duff Bridge carries Center Street over the Parkway North (I-279) in Ross Township. For additional information, contact Jeanna Fisher, Construction Manager, at 412-350-5978.
