Work on Route 462 bridge to cause weekend closure
Motorists in the Springettsbury and Spring Garden townships should be aware of the upcoming closure of the Route 462 or Market Street Bridge.
On the weekend of May 19-22, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will be closing the bridge so crews can apply an epoxy overlay to the bridge deck and pave bridge approaches, weather permitting.
A detour will be in place for the duration of the work. Motorists travelling west on Market Street from the east side of the closure should head north on North Hills Road, west on Route 30 and south on North Shermans Street.
The bridge will close at 9 p.m. Friday, May 19, and reopen at 6 a.m. Monday, May 22.
