January 5, 2018 – Intermittent right lane closures are scheduled on Interstate 676 in both directions between the 17th Street and 22nd Street bridges in Philadelphia on Wednesday, January 10, and Thursday, January 11, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for overhead bridge construction, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) said today.
Drivers should allow additional time for travel in the construction zone because backups and delays will occur. The contractor’s schedule is weather dependent.
The overnight operation is part of the four-year, $64.8 million project to replace seven bridges over I-676 between 22nd Street and 18th Street, and to make landscaping and streetscape improvements above the expressway. Construction began in April 2015 and will finish in November 2018, a year ahead of schedule.
Buckley & Company, Inc. of Philadelphia is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds.
