The weight limit was lowered immediately today to 3 tons on the Homeville Creek No. 4 bridge on Ravine Street in Munhall following an inspection, meaning that only cars are allowed to cross it.
The limit was lowered from 10 tons for a single vehicle and 17 tons for combinations after an inspection, the Allegheny County Public Works Department announced today.
Combination traffic is now prohibited.
The bridge is between Route 837 and Duquesne Road.
Three tons is the lowest weight limit used for bridges.
Further deterioration would require it to be closed.
