Greenwood Avenue Closes This Month for a Bridge Rehabilitation Project

Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is closing Greenwood Avenue between Hedgerow Lane and Spruce Lane to pedestrian and vehicular traffic on or about March 25, 2019. This bridge rehabilitation project is expected approximately 24 Weeks. The detour will be posted and signage installed in accordance with PennDOT plans and Standards.

The bridge replacement project will require Greenwood Avenue traffic traveling between Rices Mill Road and Church Road to be detoured for the duration of the project.  Beginning Monday, March 25, through early September, Greenwood Avenue motorists will be directed to use Route 309 (Ogontz Avenue), Route 152 (Limekiln Pike), and Route 73 (Church Road) as a detour bypass route.  Local traffic access will be maintained up to the construction zone.  Every effort will be made to minimize the impact and duration of the project.

The Greenwood Avenue Bridge crosses over a branch of Rock Creek is a single-span stone masonry arch structure, and was built in 1908. The Greenwood Avenue Bridge is one of seven bridges in Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery counties that Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is repairing under a $7,220,000 bridge improvement project.
