Andy Warhol Bridge to close August 15 for rehab project
The Andy Warhol (7th Street) Bridge will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic beginning at 9 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 15.
The closure is required for a $25.4 million rehabilitation project. The project includes a new concrete deck, structural steel repairs, painting, and upgrades to the bridge’s draining system. The project is anticipated to last until November 17, 2017.
The Rachel Carson (9th Street) Bridge will be utilized as a detour. The Roberto Clemente (6th Street) Bridge will still be closed prior to and after Pittsburgh Pirates home games, and traffic leaving the City of Pittsburgh should find an alternate route.
Suggested routes include the David McCullough (16th Street) Bridge or the Fort Duquesne Bridge. The Port Authority of Allegheny County will provide any information regarding changes to bus stops or routes prior to the closure. The project is being done by Brayman Construction of Saxonburg, PA.
