*Traffic Alert*

Due to a waterline break and ongoing repairs on Elizabeth Ave the road is completely closed to through traffic between Florence Ave and Taylor Ave.




Port Authority of Allegheny County will reopen the Center Avenue Bridge in Emsworth on Friday, December 22, 2017.

The $3.6 million project began in February and was completed by Mosites Construction Co. of Robinson Township. Construction included repairing the steel structure and replacing the concrete decking.

Significant deterioration of the bridge forced the Authority to impose a five-ton weight restriction in 2010, which meant fire trucks, ambulances and buses were unable to use it. Once the bridge reopens, the weight limit will return to 40 tons. The 19L - Emsworth Limited bus will return to using the bridge on Tuesday, December 26, 2017.

Built in 1973, the Center Avenue Bridge spans Camp Horne Road and serves the areas of Emsworth, Ben Avon, Ben Avon Heights and Avalon.
