Short-term lane closures will start Wednesday on Freeport Road near the Hulton Bridge, PennDOT officials said.

Lanes will be closed as needed and when weather permits from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays through Jan. 11.

Crews will be taking test borings along Freeport Road as part of the design process for a future replacement of the Hulton Bridge, the lavender-tinted two-lane trestle connecting Oakmont to Harmar across the Allegheny River.

Drivers are advised to slow and use caution in the area.
