A bridge replacement project will close Route 885-Lebanon Road in West Mifflin to northbound traffic around the clock starting at 6 a.m. today, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced.
Southbound traffic will move to the northbound side of the bridge over Union Railroad tracks. Lebanon Road will close to northbound traffic at Lebanon Church Road. The detour follows Lebanon Church Road east to a left at Buttermilk Hollow Road to Mifflin Road. The detour will be in place through mid-May, according to PennDOT.
Several afternoon trips on Port Authority buses may run late because of the detour, which affects the authority's West Mifflin Garage. Routes that may be affected are the 51, 51L, 52L, 53, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, all 61-series routes, 64, 65, 81, 83, P3, P7, P76 and all Y routes.
The $4.6 million project will conclude in April 2015.
