Traffic will be restricted from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. weeknights through Dec. 30 on the West End Bridge.

Crews from Wellington Power Corp. will be installing signs and communication cables. PennDOT said restrictions will be coordinated to minimize the impact on traffic leaving Downtown during rush hour, but advises motorists to slow down when traveling through the area.

The $1.1 million project will resume next year and is likely to continue through winter, PennDOT spokesman Jim Struzzi said. About 25,000 vehicles travel the West End Bridge daily, according to PennDOT.
