The Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge is expected to reopen Nov. 14, a PennDOT spokesman said Wednesday morning.

The Beaver County span has been closed to traffic since early March when crews worked on a $16.6 million project to the structure, including deck and sidewalk repairs, steel repair and replacement, PennDOT spokesman Steve Cowan said.

“PennDOT recognizes the impacts this project had on motorists, businesses and the local communities, PennDOT District 11 Executive Dan Cessna said in a statement. “Crews have worked very hard to meet the reopening schedule.”

During its closure, the posted detour was the Sewickley Bridge, which led to sometimes traffic congestion during peak times.

Sidewalks will remain closed, Cowan said.

In addition, daylight single-lane closures are planned as more painting will be completed.

More than 12,500 cars use the bridge on an average day, Cowan said.

The Ambridge Aliquippa Bridge crosses the Ohio River between Route 65 and Route 51.
