TREDYFFRIN TOWNSHIP (CBS) – A stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike will closed for six hours early Sunday morning to allow for demolition of a bridge in Tredyffrin Township.
Pennsylvania Turnpike spokeswoman Mimi Doyle says the turnpike will be closed in both directions in portions of Chester and Montgomery Counties.
“On Sunday morning starting at 12:01 a.m. until 6 a.m., the turnpike will be shut down between the Downingtown Interchange and the Valley Forge Interchange while a contractor on the turnpike’s project to remove the bridge that carries Mill Road over the turnpike removes the steel beams,” Doyle said.
Doyle adds that the Mill Road bridge is one of three being replaced as part of the future widening of the turnpike between Valley Forge and the site of the new Route 29 Interchange under construction.
The work will be rescheduled for the following weekend if postponed due to weather.
