The northbound lane of the McKeesport-Duquesne Bridge will close this weekend so that crews can continue repairs on the road surface and approach ramps.

A district spokesman for the state Department of Transportation said the closure will begin 7 p.m. Friday and continue through 5 a.m. Monday morning, weather-permitting. The work affects traffic traveling from McKeesport to Duquesne.

All traffic from Route 148 (East Fifth Avenue) and Bowman Avenue will be detoured.

The posted detour uses Route 148, Route 30, East Pittsburgh McKeesport Boulevard, Braddock Avenue, the Rankin Bridge and southbound Route 837.

General contractor is Joseph B. Fay Company, the PennDOT spokesman said.
