Forbes Ave. closings possible next week

Road closings may be in the works on Forbes Avenue late next week to allow crews to place steel for the new Boulevard of the Allies bridge. Pennsylvania Department of Transportation spokesperson James Struzzi said tentative plans call for the beams to be placed Sept. 5 and 6, requiring some closings on Forbes Avenue. However, the steel for the bridge spans has yet to arrive on site.

In the meantime, Struzzi said, current work will not impact traffic.

Construction on the $29 million project to replace the deteriorating bridge and ramps began in April 2007. The bridge is expected to reopen in late November with the project scheduled to conclude next May. Additional information is available at
