The bridges will be closed for full replacement, and drivers will be detoured along Lisburn Road, Route 2017, Route 114, and back onto Spanglers Mill Road, Route 4027, the release states.

The construction on both bridges is expected to finish in November; however, PennDOT said unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities may change its schedule.

The bridges are being replaced as part of the state's Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. For more information, check the project's website.
