Traffic interruptions on two Youghiogheny River bridges are planned through Saturday to accommodate film crew shoots.

According to PennDOT, the Sutersville Bridge on Route 3045 (First Street), connecting Westmoreland and Allegheny counties, tentatively will be closed between 6 p.m. Thursday and 7 a.m. Friday and between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Friday.

According to a notice distributed to local residents, producers of the Netflix series Mindhunter, which is filmed in the Pittsburgh region, were to have closed the Sutersville Bridge for filming beginning Wednesday evening.

During filming, motorists will be detoured along Sutersville Road, West Main Street and Skillet Hill and Douglas Run roads.

Filming also will temporarily halt traffic between 8 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Saturday on the West Newton Bridge, which carries Route 136 over the river. Several times overnight, traffic will be stopped for a short time while a scene is filmed and then will be allowed on the bridge once more, according to PennDOT officials.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
