The tiny Fancourt Bridge, which carries westbound Fort Duquesne Boulevard traffic over the 10th Street Bypass to ramps that connect with the Fort Pitt Bridge and Commonwealth Place, has reopened, PennDOT announced this morning.
The bridge was closed for replacement Sept. 27 and the work also required closure of the eastbound lanes of the 10th Street Bypass. Ramps from the inbound Fort Pitt and Fort Duquesne bridges to the bypass were shut down and motorists detoured to Fort Duquesne Boulevard to reach the convention center area and Strip District. The closed lane on the inbound lower deck of the Fort Duquesne Bridge caused backups during morning rush hours.
The ramps and bypass were expected to reopen later today.mobilehome - breaking - Transportation
