    If you use the Roosevelt Expressway to get to and from work, you may want to consider a detour.

    Crews started work on the Twin Bridges that span the Schuylkill River on Wednesday, March 3, 2010.

    The northbound left lanes will be closed on Route 1 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays.

    That work will ultimately rehab and resurface the bridges and it will stretch through almost an entire year -- it should be completed by February of 2011.

    Some alternate routes:

    • Hunting Park Avenue
    • Lincoln Drive (except for the first weekend in March)
    • School House Lane
