PennDOT District 11 is announcing daylight restrictions at an intersection at the southern end of the East Rochester-Monaca Bridge in Monaca Borough, Beaver County will begin on Monday, May 6 weather permitting.

Lane closures will occur at the intersection of Seventeenth Street (Route 51) and Pennsylvania Avenue (Route 4044) weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through mid-June to allow crews to install temporary signals at the intersection. The restrictions could be lifted earlier if work is completed sooner.

Flaggers will assist motorists through the work zone.

This work is in preparation for the 67-day closure and detour of the Rochester-Monaca Bridge.

This $6.69 million project includes bridge preservation work on the Rochester-Monaca Bridge between Atlantic Avenue in Monaca Borough and Pleasant Street in Rochester Borough. Preservation work includes expansion joint replacement, zone painting, concrete deck overlay, downspout repair and replacement, steel and concrete repairs, as well as sidewalk, deck, barrier, and fence repairs, pavement marking upgrades, and other miscellaneous construction activities. Motorists will see a full 67-day closure and detour of the bridge via the Monaca-East Rochester Bridge between June and August 2024. Bicycle and pedestrian access will be maintained during construction. This project is expected to be completed in late 2024. 

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
