PennDOT plans to close all lanes of Route 28 Friday night
PennDOT plans to close all lanes of Route 28 between the 31st Street Bridge and the Chestnut Street overpass Friday night, according to a statement Monday.
The road is scheduled to close at 8 p.m. Friday and reopen at 8 a.m. Saturday.
If weather permits, crews will install signs on the southbound lanes and conduct concrete median work along the northbound lanes, the statement said.
Traffic will be detoured along Liberty Avenue.
Depending on weather conditions and work progress, northbound and southbound closures may occur Saturday night, the statement said.
Additionally, a southbound single-lane closure between the 31st Street Bridge and the Chestnut Street overpass will occur on Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to allow crews to conduct light pole installation. All ramps will remain open.
The work is part of the $15.4 million improvement project. Acording to PennDOT, overall work will be completed by Thanksgiving.
