Rock removal on Route 51 in Pittsburgh on Friday will force single lane closures, PennDOT officials said.

A single-lane closure will occur from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on northbound Route 51 between Crane Avenue and Woodruff Street.

One lane of northbound traffic will be maintained at all times. Southbound traffic will not be affected. PennDOT plans to monitor traffic and will temporarily remove the lane restriction if significant delays occur, officials said.
