Traffic alert

    Commuters traveling on and around the Route 100 bridge in North Coventry Township and Pottstown may have to make some route adjustments come January.

     

    PennDOT announced today its plans to reduce the bridge from four to two lanes during an 18-month repair project. The bridge, which sees about 36,000 cars a day will be fixed one half at a time, with work including the removal and replacement of the concrete bridge deck, structural repairs to the steel floor beams and steel stringer beams that support the concrete deck, painting of the structural steel and repairment of the concrete abutments at both ends of the structure.

    The project will cost $6 million.
