Weather permitting, PennDOT crews late Thursday will shut down the Fancourt bridge which carries the ramps from Fort Duquesne Boulevard to I-376 over the 10th Street Bypass until mid-to-late December.
About 7,461 vehicles use the Fancourt Bridge on an average day, a PennDOT statement said.
Crews will be reconstructing the Fancourt Bridge, including removing and replacing the superstructure, bridge deck, beams, bearings and approach slabs. Work also includes repairing sections of the retaining walls adjacent to the bridge along the 10th Street Bypass.
In addition, the ramps from the inbound Parkway East and Fort Pitt Bridge and the inbound Parkway North and Ft. Duquesne Bridge will be closed.
Detour signs will be posted.
The work is part of an $8.7 million project to improve various ramps on the Fort Pitt and Fort Duquesne bridges and the Parkway East/Central.
