Work on Portion of Schuylkill Expressway Viaduct in West Conshohocken to Begin in May or June

The Wolf Administration announced last week that over the next three months work will begin to rehabilitate two Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) viaducts, including the 6,120-foot-long structure between Interstate 676 and University Avenue in Philadelphia and a 345-foot-long structure over Route 23 and Arrowmink Creek in West Conshohocken.

“Pennsylvania’s ongoing bridge inspection program has been closely monitoring these heavily-used, 60-plus year-old structures to ensure that they continue to function as designed,” Governor Tom Wolf said. “Their analysis of the hundreds of structural components that comprise each viaduct points to the need to address the inevitable deterioration now so as to safely handle the demands of tens of thousands of motorists who use the Schuylkill Expressway each day.”

The work in Center is set to commence in April. Repairs to the structure in West Conshohocken Borough are expected to begin in May or June 2019 and will be completed by November 2019. These repairs will be done using single lane overnight closures seven days a week between 9:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m.
