Update – West Elm Street Bridge Closure

I spoke to someone at PennDOT today regarding the upcoming closure of the West Elm Street Bridge.  The latest is that the closure will not come until early next year, not November or December as we previously reported.  With the bridge out, you will now need to enter Conshy using Alan Wood Road, North Lane or Butler if you are on Ridge.

There was some speculation on Facebook that there would be a temporary road created to bypass the bridge and get cars from Conshohocken Road/West Elm into Conshy without using the bridge.  The person at PennDOT had no idea what I was talking about.
