Bridge crossing Parkway North to be closed until November
The Allegheny County Department of Public Works announced Monday that the Levi Bird Duff Bridge in Ross, which crosses the Parkway North (I-279), will be closed to traffic starting Monday and continuing until Nov. 1 as part of a $3 million repair project.
The bridge will stay open to pedestrians, who can use a temporary walkway on the bridge deck.
A six-mile detour will direct traffic in Ross from Center Avenue to the intersection of Perry Highway, then to Highland Avenue, Gass Road, Union Avenue, North Starr Avenue, Lincoln Avenue, North Balph Avenue, Bellevue Avenue and Cornell Road.
Traffic from Bellevue will use the detour in reverse.
Some Port Authority routes will be affected. The agency will notify riders about changes.
About 6,000 vehicles cross the bridge daily. The bridge opened in 1983.
