Warhol Bridge to Close Thursday Evening, August 8 thru Monday, August 12

PITTSBURGH – The Allegheny County Department of Public Works today announced that the Seventh Street Bridge (Andy Warhol Bridge) will close to all pedestrian and vehicular traffic beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 8 and will remain closed through 6:00 a.m. on Monday, August 12 for sidewalk and deck repairs. 

The installation of the Knit the Bridge project will still occur this weekend, beginning at 5:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 10, to be completed by Sunday evening.  The contractor for the bridge work, Pugliano Construction, will coordinate their work so as to not limit the organization’s access or installation.

Motorists should use caution and be prepared for changing traffic patterns. Traffic will be detoured onto the Ninth Street Bridge (Rachel Carson Bridge), and signage will be placed to indicate the alternate route. 

For additional information, contact Michael J. Dillon, P.E., Manager of Construction Engineering, at 412-350-5469.
