Lane closures are planned for the Parkway North this week, beginning at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Allegheny Country Department of Public Works officials announced nightly single-lane and shoulder closures this week on the northbound and southbound Parkway North, also known as Interstate 279.

The restrictions will be in place between Exit 5, Perrysville Avenue, and Exit 7, West View, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Tuesday and continuing through Friday, Dec. 13.

Officials advise motorists to use caution and watch for changing traffic patterns.

The lane and shoulder closures are necessary to take down a protective shielding system over I-279 as part of the county's preservation project on the Levi Bird Duff Bridge, which carries Center Street over the Parkway North between Bellevue and Ross Township, officials said.
