Motorists who use Route 837 between Duquesne and Dravosburg can expect delays this week as crews conduct pavement repairs, said a district spokesperson for the state Department of Transportation.

Single-lane alternating traffic is currently underway between Coal Valley Road and Watco Terminal and Port Services, south of the McKeesport-Duquesne Bridge. Lane restrictions are occurring in various locations from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays through Wednesday, weather permitting.

Flaggers will assist motorists through the work zone, the PennDOT spokeswoman said, adding that drivers should use caution in the area.
