PennDOT plans to install protective shielding under a McKnight Road bridge in McCandless to prevent concrete from falling onto Ingomar Road below, a spokesman said.

Crews will install boards between bridge beams between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, said PennDOT spokesman Jim Struzzi. Lane closures will occur as needed, but one lane will remain open in each direction at all times, he said, describing costs for the emergency work as “minimal.”

Concrete fell from the bridge over the weekend, but no cars were struck, Struzzi said. The bridge is slated to be replaced in 2015.
