Both Route 28 northbound lanes will be closed at the 31st Street Bridge at 8 tonight until 5 p.m. Saturday as road crews replace and repave sections of the existing roadway.

Northbound traffic will be detoured across the bridge on to Penn Avenue. Motorists will then bear left onto Butler Street, then cross the 40th Street Bridge before turning right toward Millvale and back on to /route 28.

Southbound lanes will not be affected, according to PennDOT spokesman Steve Cowan.

Access to the 31st Street Bridge will be blocked from Penn and River avenues in the opposite direction.

Signs will be posted to guide motorists along the detour route from those streets toward Route 28 via the 16th Street Bridge.

The work is part of the fourth phase of PennDOT's $120 million project set to run through late next year.
