Greenwood Ave. Bridge Replacement Project

Update: Borough officials were notified by PennDOT on March 14, 2014 that they will not be opening the bridge on the anticipated May 22, 2014 date originally announced.  The delay is the result of utility work taking longer than anticipated and the impact of this year’s winter storms.  The Greenwood Ave. Bridge is now expected to open in June 2014.  Please continue to visit this page of the Borough’s website for continued updates on this project.

Project overview

The PA Dept. of Transportation (PennDOT) conducted a public meeting on May 31, 2012 regarding the upcoming Greenwood Ave. Bridge replacement project.  PennDOT is anticipating a closure date of June 25, 2012 and construction is expected to last 15 months.  Car and truck detour routes have been outlined and are available on PennDOT’s project website (a link has been posted below).  Demolition of the existing bridge is expected to occur in the late summer/early fall after the completion of the relocation of existing utility lines.  Night and weekend work is possible during windows provided by SEPTA.  Construction is not anticipated to disrupt SEPTA train service.

Car detour route:  Greenwood Ave., Church Rd., Washington Lane, and Township Line Road

Truck detour route: Greenwood Ave., Route 309, Washington Lane, and Township Line Road

SEPTA: SEPTA will post a detour plan for the Route 77 bus on its website.  Please check SEPTA’s website for updates.
