Liberty Bridge to close in both directions Saturday
The Liberty Bridge will close Saturday in both directions.
The inbound lanes of the bridge will close from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., along with a single-lane restriction from 5 to 7 p.m., according to a PennDOT news release.
The outbound lanes will close from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
P.J. McArdle Roadway and the Liberty Tunnel will remain open in both directions, and detours will be posted, the release said.
The closures are related to an $80 million bridge rehabilitation project slated to be finished in July.
On Saturday, crews will be doing electrical work related to the project, the release said.
The closure could increase traffic ahead of the Penguins game, which starts at 7 p.m. Saturday in Pittsburgh.
In addition, the ice rink at PPG Place is open this weekend.
