Single lane traffic in the area of the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge is expected to last in both directions through late July.
Single-lane traffic on Route 65 in the area under the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge will begin on Monday, March 12, according to PennDOT. From 9 a.m. Monday through late July, crews will be installing supports and conducting pier repairs on the bridge above Route 65. Single-lane traffic will occur in each direction, PennDOT said. The nearby Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge closed Saturday for a $16.6 million project to repair the 10-span structure. The bridge is expected to reopen in mid-November, while the overall project will conclude in late 2013. Traffic meanwhile is being detoured to the Sewickley Bridge.

PennDOT officials do not expect the resurfacing work to produce significant impacts to traffic during the closing of the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge.
A road resurfacing and upgrade project scheduled to take place in late May on Route 65 is expected to bring additional traffic restrictions in the area of the Sewickley Bridge — also designated as an alternative detour during repairs to a nearby bridge. Beginning Saturday, the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge will close until mid-November as part of a $16.6 million repair project. PennDOT spokesman James Struzzi said the Route 65 resurfacing work — scheduled to occur about three months later — isn’t expected to cause any significant impacts to detouring traffic from the closing of the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge. “The resurfacing work on Route 65 will be done during off-peak hours when traffic volumes are considerably less,” Struzzi said. “There…

Alternative detours to the Sewickley Bridge could lead to additional traffic control costs, officials say.
Sewickley and Moon Township could be left footing some of the bill for extra traffic control when the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge shuts down in about two weeks. Sewickley Manager Kevin Flannery told council Tuesday night that the borough recently received a letter indicating reimbursements may not be available for providing extra manpower, although additional traffic control will be needed once the bridge closes. The Sewickley Bridge has been designated as the alternative detour route when the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge closes March 3 as part of a $16.6 million repair project. Repairs are slated to be complete in mid-November. Jim Struzzi, PennDOT spokesman, said today there was funding in the contract to provide assistance with traffic …
