Weather Delays Closure for Route 20 Bridge in Girard Township
The weather forecast has caused PennDOT to reschedule its weekend closure for the Route 20 (Ridge Road) bridge in Girard Township, Erie County.
The bridge will now be closed from 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, to 6 a.m. Monday, Sept. 23.
The closure will allow crews to pave the new concrete deck on the structure, which cannot be done under rainy conditions.
A detour using Route 18, Interstate 90, and Route 98 will be posted.
When the closure is lifted, traffic will be reduced to one lane controlled by a temporary traffic signal for seven days.
