Bridge work to snag Rt. 41 traffic

Delays are expected Friday on Rt. 41 in West Fallowfield Township, when traffic is restricted to one lane between Rt. 10 and Highland Avenue from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to implement a traffic pattern, PennDot said today.

 PennDot advises motorists to allow more time for travel because crews will be moving concrete barriers and paint ing new traffic lines. Flaggers will control the single-lane of traffic through the construction zone. 

 Crews will work Friday to move Rt. 41’s northbound and southbound travel lanes to the east side of the highway, where crews are building a new bridge over Knights Run. The operation is weather-dependent. PennDot's contractor is building a new precast reinforced concrete arch culvert to replace the former structurally deficient bridge that was built in 1953. The bridge carries about 15,278 vehicles per day.
