Freeport Road will close early Tuesday and Thursday between the C.L. Schmitt Bridge in East Deer and Conroy Way in Tarentum to make way for super-sized loads on the way to a hot strip mill under construction, PennDOT said.

The first closure will occur from midnight Monday through 7 a.m. Tuesday. The second will be from midnight Wednesday to 7 a.m. Thursday.

Northbound traffic will detour via Riddle Run Road, Butler Logan Road, Route 28 and Route 366. Southbound traffic will follow the same detour in the opposite direction. Signs will be posted.

Allegheny Technologies Inc. is spending $1.1 billion to build a new hot strip mill at its Brackenridge Works. Trailers will carry loads of up to 350,000 pounds to the construction site, Texas-based hauler Fagioli Inc. said.
