Dannehower Bridge lanes to be restricted


It’s spring - time for cleaning and inspection of bridges, says PennDOT.

In Montgomery County, this means the Dannehower Bridge which links Norristown and Bridgeport over the Schuylkill will close one southbound lane from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 29. That is tomorrow, folks.

In addition, traffic on the Dannehower Bridge will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Monday, April 9, to Wednesday, April 11, between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Traffic tie-ups will likely result.

The latter lane restriction will be for PennDOT's biannual bridge inspection that officials said is needed to ensure the safety of the structures.

PennDOT says motorists can log on to www.511pa.com or call 511 from any phone to check traffic conditions on major highways before heading out.
