The Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge will reopen the evening of Nov. 14 after a two-season closure for a rehabilitation project, PennDOT announced today.
The sidewalks will remain closed and single-lane closures will be required during the daytime for completion of painting, according to PennDOT.
This season's closure for the $16.6 million rehabilitation began March 4. Last month, PennDOT had said the reopening would be pushed back to late November or early December because of weather-related delays.
"PennDOT recognizes the impacts this project had on motorists, businesses and the local communities," PennDOT district executive Dan Cessna said in a statement. "We appreciate the patience of everyone as we worked to rehabilitate this important bridge. Crews have worked very hard to meet the reopening schedule. We are pleased that we are able to open the bridge on time."
