PennDOT District 11 is announcing a lane closure on Route 3104 (McKees Rocks Bridge) in the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County will begin Tuesday night, June 4 weather permitting.

The right turning lane from the McKees Rocks Bridge to southbound Route 65 will close to traffic from 7 p.m. Tuesday night continuously through early September. Traffic will still be able to turn right onto southbound Route 65 from the through lane at the main intersection. The mountable curb on southbound Route 65 has been modified to accommodate truck traffic making the right-hand turn from the bridge. Crews will perform bridge deck, barrier and sidewalk improvements.

The $38.6 million McKees Rocks Bridge preservation project extends between Route 51 (Island Avenue) and Route 65 (Ohio River Boulevard) and includes sidewalk replacement, sidewalk support steel repairs, sidewalk railing painting, full-depth concrete pavement reconstruction of the road and two ramps at Helen Street, ADA curb ramp installation, approach pavement work at intersections of Routes 65 and 51, barrier replacement and upgrade, deck overhang and spall repair, railroad fencing installation, and other miscellaneous construction. As work occurs, traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction. The overall project is anticipated to conclude in the fall of 2025.

The Brayman Construction Corporation and Advantage Steel and Construction, LLC are the prime contractor.
