Here is a traffic update.
Short-term single lane alternating use traffic on the bridge that carries Freeport Road over Barge Basin (Guys/Campbells Run) in Harmar will occur on Thursday and Friday, Aug. 9 and 10, weather permitting.
Restrictions will occur as needed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days in the bridge area between the Hulton Bridge (which carries traffic from Oakmont to Harmar) and Guys Run Road. Crews will be placing concrete.
