PITTSBURGH, PA (May 12, 2020) The City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure is announcing on-going traffic restrictions to facilitate repairs to the Swindell Bridge over I-279.
Traffic on the bridge between Perry South and Northview Heights was restricted to one lane beginning on Monday, May 11. All traffic is being directed by the contractor’s flaggers during normal work hours and stop signs during off hours.
This bridge has been restricted to one lane for the past year due to localized deterioration of five steel beams. Repairs to these beams will enable the bridge to be reopened to unrestricted traffic.
The City is working closely with the contractor to expedite the project and minimize inconvenience to the public. This project is scheduled to be completed by early June.
If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact Zachary Workman, Project Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tonight, the City-County Building is illuminated to recognize Poison Prevention Week and the 50th Anniversary of "Mr. Yuk" in partnership with Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
For questions about the lighting at the City-County Building, please reach out to the Office of the Mayor.
