Greenfield Bridge to Close for Maintenance

PITTSBURGH, PA (September 15, 2020) The City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) will implement a full closure of the Greenfield Bridge between Schenley Park and the Greenfield neighborhood starting at 7:00 a.m., Monday, September 21, 2020.  

Mosites Construction Company, the contractor who built the bridge, will be addressing several outstanding issues that will ensure the longevity of the structure. The concrete deck surface will be milled and overlaid with a 1-1/4” thick concrete wearing surface meant to ensure water does not permeate into the deck. Also, the protective coating on the east bridge barrier will be replaced to address flaking and peeling that has been observed.  

This work will take approximately 30 days during which time the bridge will be closed to all vehicle and pedestrian traffic.  

Traffic will be detoured via Beechwood Boulevard, Forward Avenue, Murray Avenue and Beacon Street. There should be no impact to travel on I-376 below. For more information on this project, please contact DOMI's Eric Setzler at eric.setzler@pittsburghpa.gov
