Lane closures starting Monday for Henry Avenue bridge deck repairs.
The Wissahickon Memorial bridge leads Henry Avenue across the creek near Philadelphia/Jefferson University. According to PennDOT, it’s a reinforced concrete “open spandrel deck arch” bridge built in 1931, now carrying nearly 30,000 vehicles per day.
And it needs some fixing. Starting Monday, Eastbound motorists on Henry Avenue will face extra traffic, thanks to right-lane closures during bridge deck repairs. FYI, PennDOT’s spending over almost 12 million dollars to rehab five structurally-deficient bridges, including ours.
