Route 30 in East Pittsburgh will be closed this weekend so that workers can put a top coat of latex paving on a new bridge.

Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, the bridge that carries Route 30 over Bessemer Avenue between Center Street and Clyde Avenue, will close to traffic in both directions continuously through 6 a.m. Monday, said a district spokesman for the state Department of Transporation.

The detour will use Electric Avenue, Braddock Avenue, East Pittsburgh-McKeesport Boulevard, and motorists should expect delays. Local traffic will still be able to access Brinton Road and Center Street.

Bessemer Avenue and Linden Avenue also will close in the area of the bridge, the PennDOT spokesman said.
