The Allegheny County Department of Public Works will hold a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. July 28 to discuss the planned closure and rehabilitation of the Homeville Viaduct.
The meeting will be held in the auditorium of West Mifflin Middle School, 81 Commonwealth Blvd.
Officials from Allegheny County, the state Department of Transportation, the borough and West Mifflin Area School District will be on hand to answer questions and address concerns.
Located between West Mifflin Area High School and the Duquesne Village shopping center, the 779-foot-long bridge, built in 1955, carries Homeville Road between Homestead-Duquesne Road and Commonwealth Boulevard. It crosses the Union Railroad and a creek.
Work to repair and upgrade the bridge is scheduled to start this August and will force its closure through late 2016.
The meeting is intended to offer the opportunity for the public to hear a brief presentation and ask questions related to the $10.2 million project.
