Another Area Bridge Slated for Work

Add the Sewickley Bridge to PennDOT’s list for work. The Sewickley Bridge will get resurfacing work done and will force PennDOT to shut down the span for a 10-day stretch next year.

Though a 10 day closure for a busy bridge is not a happy proposition, PennDOT district executive Cheryl Moon-Sirianni says it’s better than closing the bridge 15 consecutive weekends, which was the alternative.

PennDOT says 18,000 vehicles use the Sewickley Bridge daily.

The Ambridge/Aliquippa Bridge to the west and Interstate 79 to the ease will become the detour routes during the closure.

A public information meeting about the bridge project is scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday at the Sewickley Library.
