Work on the Homestead Grays Bridge will resume Sunday night and is expected to continue through the end of the month.

Although milling and paving work is done, the bridge will once again be reduced to one lane in each direction starting at 10 p.m. Sunday. Those restrictions will be in place from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday for the remainder of the project, which will conclude later this month, according to the Allegheny County Department of Public Works.

No more ramp closures are expected, and pedestrians will continue to have access to the bridge’s sidewalks.

The milling and paving work is part of a $2.5 million bridge preservation project that began on March 25 and that includes structural steel repairs, downspout and scupper repairs and cleanout, and barrier and deck repairs.

The bridge spans the Monongahela River between Homestead and Pittsburgh.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
