An inspection that will limit Sewickley Bridge traffic to one lane will take place Sunday, a PennDOT spokesman said.

A single lane of alternating traffic will occur from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, PennDOT spokesman Steve Cowan said.

Moon and Sewickley police will control traffic flow on both sides of the bridge, he said.

An inspection originally was planned for about a two-week period beginning July 22, but was delayed after PennDOT leaders said they wanted to re-evaluate the impact on traffic, Cowan said.

The Sewickley Bridge already serves as the posted detour for the closed Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge, which closed earlier this year as crews continue a multi-phase $16.6 million construction project on the Beaver County span. The Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge is expected to reopen in the fall.
