The Boston Bridge reopened today to pedestrians, but the 1,182-foot-long span carrying Route 48 over the Youghiogheny River between Versailles and Elizabeth Township will remain closed to vehicle traffic until late September, PennDOT said.

The bridge had been closed to pedestrians starting July 19.

PennDOT is making repairs to the structurally deficient bridge in a $17.3 million project. Work includes replacing the bridge's deck and sidewalk, replacing steel support beams, repairing cracks in piers supporting the structure and repainting the bridge.
