Swindell Bridge Traffic Restrictions In Place

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
