East Wynnewood Road Closing June 11th

The bridge carrying Wynnewood Road (Route 3044) over the East Branch of Indian Creek in Narberth Borough and Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County, is scheduled to close for construction on June 11 as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. The project should be complete by the end of 2018.
During the bridge closure, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along U.S. 30 (Lancaster Avenue) and U.S. 1 (City Avenue). Residents on Woodside Avenue in Narberth Borough will be detoured around the bridge along Maple Avenue and Chestnut Avenue. Residents of Parkview Drive in Lower Merion will follow a detour along Clover Hill Road and Williams Road.
The Wynnewood Road bridge averages over 9,300 daily vehicles. Built in 1934, the single-span concrete, solid slab bridge will be replaced with a new single-span culvert. Replacement work will be performed by Allan Myers of Worcester, PA.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-218 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
