Daytime single-lane closures begin Monday on the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge, a PennDOT spokesman said Friday afternoon.

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays through Dec. 10, crews will inspect the Beaver County span, spokesman Steve Cowan said.

The inspection means crews will limit the bridge to single-lane, alternating traffic as needed, he said.

Work is weather permitting.

The Beaver County span had been closed to traffic since early March when crews finished a $16.6 million project to the structure, including deck and sidewalk repairs, steel repair and replacement.

More than 12,500 cars use the bridge on an average day, according to PennDOT data.

The span crosses the Ohio River between Route 65 and Route 51.
