Further lane restrictions planned for McKees Rocks Bridge
PennDOT District 11 is announcing lane restrictions on the McKees Rocks Bridge for Tuesday, Dec. 6, weather permitting.
Single-lane alternating traffic will occur on the McKees Rocks Bridge at the Helen Street on- and off-ramps as needed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday. Crews will repair a damaged inlet on the bridge. Bi-directional traffic will be maintained and flaggers will assist motorists through the work zone.
Phase 2 of the $22.4 million McKees Rocks Bridge preservation project extends between Route 51 (Island Avenue) and Route 65 (Ohio River Boulevard) and includes sidewalk repairs and replacement, full-depth concrete pavement reconstruction of the road and four ramps at Helen Street, ADA curb ramp installation, approach pavement work at intersections of Routes 65 and 51, barrier repair, deck overhang and spall repair, fencing installation, and other miscellaneous construction.
As work occurs, traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction, with occasional truck and turning-lane detours occurring at the West End Bridge as needed.
The overall project is anticipated to conclude in the fall of 2024.
