Overhead Bridge Construction To Shut Down I-676 Three Nights Next Week

The Pennsylavnia Department of Transportation (PennDOT) reports that I-676 will close three nights next week.

The interstate will shut down in both directions between I-76 and Broad Street (Route 611) from Monday, April 4th through Wednesday, April 6th during the hours of 11PM and 5AM.

A four-year, $64.8 million project  will be underway, as construction workers aim to replace 7 structurally deficient bridges over I-676 between 22nd Street and 18th Street.

This project also aims to make landscape and streetscape improvements above the expressway. 

Looking ahead, you can expect weeknight closures of I-676 during the weeks of April 11, April 18 and April 25. These operations will set additional steel beams over the expressway.
