Parkway East, Greenfield Bridge close for five days in PA

Pennsylvania's Parkway East will be closed for five days so that crews can demolish Greenfield Bridge.

I-376 East had full-lane closures beginning at 6 a.m. Sunday. The closure may last through Jan. 1, ending at 6 a.m. Officials and crews estimate that the parkway will open earlier than that, assuming that they have fair weather to complete the work.

While the lanes are closed, the demolition of the Greenfield Bridge started at approximately 9 a.m. Monday. Crews will then clean up the demolition site.

When the crews close the routes on I-376, they will create detours for drivers. The outbound lanes will be closed starting at Exit 72A to Oakland. This traffic will need to follow the detour that begins at Exit 72A.

Traffic traveling inbound will experience closures beginning at Exit 78B to Wilkinsburgh. Drivers will need to follow the detour that begins with Exit 78B. From this exit through to Exit 77, drivers will need to travel in one lane.

In addition, the Greenfield outbound entrance ramp as well as the Bates Street outbound entrance ramp will both be closed. There will be further detours created for these closures as well.
