Per PennDOT, traffic will be impacted next weekend to allow the new Freedom Road bridge to be installed.
Bridge modules will be moved from Thompson Park to the Freedom Road Bridge site starting Friday, June 5 through Sunday, June 7.
Freedom Road: Two closures of Freedom Road are scheduled to occur Friday, June 5 and Saturday, June 6 from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Both closures will be implemented to erect bridge modules as well as complete other contract work.
Executive Drive/Thomson Park Drive: Transportation of bridge modules to the project site using 15-minute rolling closures will occur on Friday, June 5 and Saturday, June 6. Rolling closures are anticipated at approximately 10 p.m. both nights.
Pennsylvania Turnpike: Rolling closures are scheduled to occur eastbound on Saturday, June 6 and westbound on Sunday, June 7 between the midnight and 5 a.m.
The detour eastbound on Freedom Road will have motorists turn right onto Commonwealth Drive to Thornhill Road, then go northbound on Route 19 to Freedom Road.
Motorists westbound on Freedom Road will turn right onto Executive Drive, turn right onto Cranberry Square Drive then go southbound onto Route 19 to Thornhill Road to Commonwealth Drive, back to Freedom Road.
Delays are anticipated, and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes. The Township will provide police assistance during these closures.
The overall project aims to replace the existing bridge over Interstate 76 with a two-span, six-lane bridge. The bridge will also have sidewalks.
