Grays Ferry Avenue Bridge Daytime Lane Closure Sept. 24 for Construction in Philadelphia

The westbound Grays Ferry Avenue Bridge over the Schuylkill River between 34th and 47th streets in Philadelphia will be reduced to one lane on Friday, September 24, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for fence installation, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent. 

The work is part of the $14 million project to rehabilitate the bridge and complete a number of improvements to Grays Ferry Avenue on both sides of the bridge. Major construction on the project was substantially completed earlier this year.

Buckley & Company Inc., of Philadelphia is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds.
