CRANBERRY TWP — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has rescheduled a single lane closure on I-79 set to take place on Wednesday due to weather.

Motorists heading south near Cranberry on I-79 can now expect to face delays on Dec. 9 as PennDOT completes the first phase of its interstate bridge over North Boundary Road.

Between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., there will be short-term single-lane closures between mile markers 81.4 and 80.5 on I-79 southbound as road crews remove the temporary road that allowed traffic to flow while the bridge was being constructed.

Following the closures, drivers will be able to drive on the new, two-lane bridge.

The second phase of the project is planned to begin next spring. In that project, PennDOT will replace the bridge heading north.
