Andy Warhol Bridge to be Closed Tonight, Through Weekend

The Andy Warhol Bridge will be closed to all vehicle and pedestrian traffic starting at 6 p.m. Thursday for sidewalk and deck repairs, according to the Allegheny County Department of Public Works. The bridge will remain closed through 6 a.m. on Monday.

The installation of the Knit the Bridge project is also planned for this weekend. The project is expected to be the largest “yarn bomb” ever in the United States. Installation will begin Saturday morning and be completed by Sunday evening.

The contractor for the bridge work will be coordinating efforts with the Knit the Bridge project, according to the public works department. Traffic will be detoured onto the Ninth Street Bridge.
