Mon-Yough area motorists who commute to Pittsburgh via Second Avenue can expect some delays beginning next week.

The Allegheny County Department of Public Works has announced that the right-hand northbound (inbound to downtown Pittsburgh) lane of the Glenwood Bridge will be closed between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays, beginning Monday, and continuing through Aug. 17.

The lane closure is needed so that Duquesne Light can safely remove electrical conduit ducts.

Maintained and owned by Allegheny County, the Glenwood Bridge carries state-owned Route 885 over the Monongahela River in the City of Pittsburgh.

Drivers might experience short traffic delays on and near the bridge, and they are urged to use caution in the area, a county spokesman said.
