City Announces 28th Street Bridge Lane Restrictions

PITTSBURGH, PA (August 20, 2021) The Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) has announced that the 28th Street Bridge is scheduled for an in-depth inspection from Tuesday, August 24 to Saturday, August 28. The work will require intermittent lane closures on the bridge between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The work is being performed by Alfred Benesch & Co. to facilitate the rehabilitation analysis of the bridge that was originally constructed in 1931. In addition to repairing and strengthening the bridge, the goal of the project is to improve multimodal access to Polish Hill and the Strip District.

Signs will be posted and flaggers will be used to direct traffic.

Thank you for your cooperation during this time and we hope there will be only minor inconveniences. If you have any questions or require further information regarding this closure you may contact the City’s Response Center by calling 311 or 412-255-2621.
